My next project is a Grumman F4F-3 Wildcat, and I'm looking for the closest match to Grumman's Bronze Green cockpit color. I seem to recall that ModelMaster Euro 1 Dark Green is a good substitute, but I'm not sure. I use mainly ModelMaster and Tamiya acrylics.

Thanks!

Drew

That's what I'll plan do. Already have the paint, just need to mix it.
