    Wel I'll be smart and tell you which. I would like to build the ship Admiral Graf Spee and I was wondering if anyone of you know that colour of grey th KM was using and which number that is in Revel colours.

    I have the kit and it's whimpering at me from the closet.....

    I am no expert and need to do a lot of research on paints before committing to this kit but the colour profile included has the basic grey called up as Vallejo 990, Model Master 1728, Tamiya XF19, and Humbrol 127. No Revell call-outs.

    I would suggest that you check out some ship modeling forums as it's a popular subject and the colours would almost certainly be discussed.

    Also if you think that colour is a little light, look at 374 or 76 !

    No.....I think that's an appropriate comment for this thread.
