Smokeater Posted March 12, 2013 Share Posted March 12, 2013 Howdy all, Let me start by saying I'm new again to modeling. Its been many years. My son got me a nice Revell F/A-18 kit(I'm a NAVY guy and worked on them while I served) and it has sat for months because I was unfamiliar to painting (NOT SCARED)as my son put it. Recently he got me a snap together thing that resembles a F/A-18, I wont disgrace anyone by calling it a model, and declared that if I wasn't man enough to do a real model maybe I could tackle the snap together kind. So I went all in, built a nice work area, bought a compressor and airbrush along with all the tools of the trade according to the many post I've read on this site. I choose Acrylics and Createx is the brand I'm using as its the most common in my area. Now I'm ready to paint. The problem is Aircraft Grey isn't a standard color for Createx. I have medium Grey, I've been mixing a little white with the medium grey a little at a time to soften it up but its still not right. I've used up almost a whole bottle of grey and at $5.00 a bottle, trial and error is going to start hitting me right in the wallet. So knowing how inteligent yall are (I've been reading your posts)I thought someone might be able to point me in the direction of a color chart or some way to get the right color. Thanks to all in advance Quote Link to post Share on other sites
