Anyone tried MRP - Camouflage Grey - FS36170?

 

See the first page of this thread. Richard checked a number of brands including MRPs. He made paint samples and tested them against FS color cards.

Great thread Richard!

 

My plan is to take your best three recommendations and compare them against the actual jets.   I work in the F-35 ITF program here at Pax.   Providing I can get them past FOD control!   Lol.

Sweet deal 👍

I would say Hataka, MRP, and Gunze look pretty darn good.

I used mission models' FS36170 on my one an only F-35. I like it but it is too metallic.  The shelf life or the pain, or the thinner as some have surmised was also short.

 

I might try Gunze on my next F-35.

I too find that the MM paint is too metallic.   The actual planes are not metallic at all.  There is some sheen in certain area, but that is more from wear than metallic bits in the paint.

I will order those paints now and spray samples and check.  I have the MM, but as I said, the jets are not metallic at all.
