What colors I used for a custom blended KCS Gray.
I recently painted a KCS SW1500. This required a custom mix of paint to match KCS's blue tinted gray paint. Here's what I chose.
Microscale's sheet instructed the use of Floquil primer gray with a few drops of blue. I decided to use Model Master Navy Aggressor Gray, with Testors Light Blue mixed in. I feel it turned out good, although maybe a tad too blue. This can be fixed by adding back in more grey.
