I sprayed the paint through airbrush over my brush strokes I did yesterday. Here is that color again indoors. Looks kinda grey. Outside looks more blue. In other light it looks green. Hard to judge with iPhone photos.

This is the color I’m going with. Thanks to superjedi for help in deciding. In keeping with the house paint experiment, I color matched the rlm 73. Doesn’t look like what I expected. Perhaps my paint matching technique doesn’t work, but we’ll see how it looks when it’s down with the other colors. :unsure:

See you on the other side.

Haven’t updated lately, but I have been busy on this project. Here is where I am currently.

Still have a lot of touch up and detail work to do.
The lighting/iPhone camera makes the green look brighter than it actually is.
Yeah. Can definitely account for lighting making a huge difference how things look.
It will tone down properly when final weathering is applied too.
Looking good so far!

I've been playing around in Photoshop with layering swatches and their opacity over each other, and came up with this for ESB green.
It's a combo of Rustoleum Rich Jade Green, Spruce Green and Flat White, with varying opacities and layer placements until it got somewhere close.
Here it is.
