Desert Storm AC-130H color question

Recommended Posts

I'm building an Italeri/AMT 1/72 AC-130H for a friend who wants it marked as one of the ODS spectres on the kit decal sheet. The thing is, I'm not quite sure Italeri's suggested FS36300 is quite right. Can anyone help tell me if it is indeed correct, or should I look for some other color, please? Thanks.

FS 36118 is what you want. It's even called Gunship Grey :D

If you do a photo search....

I'm in the same boat as you, Just picked up the Minicraft 1/144 Specter. That kit has no less than three paint schemes two in 36118 gray, two in all flat black, which I can't find any pictures of just drawings, then there's this nice two tone:

The all-flat black are from the AC-130E days of vietnam. All AC-130Hs began life as AC-130Es. (or most of them did, anyway)
