 Better link.
 I have the set but haven't used it yet.
The colors are close enough for me. The grey-green was what I was looking for in particular.
I use the colors as specified in kit instructions or color profiles.

Thanks krow.
And the grey green is useful for what? Interior color?

Hard to pin down as it seems to be used all over the Gotha , with no real desiignation.
I got a number of variants of the color as well from diff manufacturers . just color matching so I can have a selection
WNW recommends XF 76 or Humbrol 90.
Here is a selection of the color rom Vallejo :


 So far Ive used it on the fuel tanks , over brass:

Would the Fokker Grey color be used on the EI-III as the overall color now accepted on many aircraft?
