Default Light gray ?

I am looking for a light gray paint, preferably spray can, with a shade as close as possible to the one used by Airbus and Boeing on their aircraft.

So far, the light gray I have found is far too dark.

Any advice ?
Thank you.

Jean Pierre.

Hi Jean Pierre,

for light gray I prefer Revell 34371 Light grey. It is a spray can. I use it as my standard "Boeing gray".

See the picture of a KLM MD 11 in OC below.

For Lufthansa planes I use Revell 34374, which is a darker gray and matches their grey best, in my humble opinion.

Hope this helps.

Markus
