UKPonchoMan Posted March 4, 2012 Share Posted March 4, 2012 (edited) Over the past year or so I've painted a couple of F-16s and noticed that the Xtracolor Gunship Grey (FS36118) seemed very light. I put this down to the matt coat, but I've just painted two more and had the same problem. I pulled out a fresh tin, and the results have been...interesting... These are the two tins - definitely the same paint:- Although quite clearly different:- And on the models:- Just to confirm I wasn't going mad, I checked my copy of FS595b. The first picture shows the old tin, the second the new one:- [/center}So... given that I've had similar problems with the Aggressor greys (FS36176 and FS36251) and the Vietnam greens (FS34079 and FS34102) it seems that Xtracolor cannot be trusted to get their color matching right. My suggestion - spray a test before you use Xtracolor in future, or you might not like what you find! Chris Edited March 4, 2012 by UKPonchoMan Quote Link to post Share on other sites
