Response to Tips for painting Panzer Grey?


I did a Panzer III a few years back and used Tamiya German Grey. Like you, I thought it was way too dark. I tried using flat white to fade the grey, but I didn't like the results. I then tried different lighter greys to fade the German Grey until I got results that I thought looked right. I would experiment XF19 Sky Grey, XF20 Medium Grey, or XF64 Dark Sea Grey with a 5::1 ratio.
