Does anyone have a modern day match for the RAF Blue paint?

What use, what colour? April 25 2007, 5:06 AM
It might depend on the use. I don't have a reference number for a colour paint, but it is obvious that RAF painted vehicles are in a blue grey colour, whereas something like a helmet can almost be straight grey. There might have been different paints for different uses during the war, but either way there is certainly more than one shade.

A pair of Mk VII goggles can be used to match the blue-grey at a paint shop, if you have access to a set.

How could I be so dense !!! April 26 2007, 4:10 PM
Now that is a brilliant idea, why didn't I think of that... DUH!
The sad part is that a portion of my job is teaching students how to remodel structures, I instruct them how to get paint color matched by a computer.
