    Some quick ESB colour questions

    Morning peeps! sorry to start a thread on this, Ive searched and searced and just cant come up with a concrete solution. I will be doing a new ESB paintup soon, airbrushing Humbrol enamels. Terminal Fettlers list seems spot on for the most part, but looking through a thread where Ponte did a killer paintjob also, they came to the conclusion that the humbrol Grey 106 (ocean grey) used for the rear panels and mandibles was in fact a little dark. Ponte came up with the solution of using Floquil Reefer grey. Now, that would generally be me done, except for the fact that Floquil is very tough to find in my area. So, was wondering, if anyone has come up with a Humbrol colour or mix that is closer to reefer grey? Any help apprciated gang. Peace

    Awesome buddy, looking forward to it. Your great templates were what inspired me to get started on this new ESB Hero lid, and learn from my last one to hopefully make it killer!

    Actually guys, all sorted - was just a case of me misreading Garrets updated list - must be the old age setting in ;-). Humbrol 106 was the color I was looking for. Will get a progress thread going down the track. Cheers gang :-)
