Dude, you're gonna have to mix no matter what.
I like Tamiya & Testors model masters acrylic, but have never tried to make the Matty flight suit color match.

Was anyone successful figuring out what brand of paint the "camouflage light grey" was from? I've been having a miserable time trying to mix something close, and was never able to track down online what that exact paint was.

I think (as I've yet to try it!) it's Testors Camouflage Gray FS36622.

Shame nobody else has been able to help with this. Must be a secret!

Gah...I missed this thread, or I would have mentioned it sooner. I even have a bottle of Camoflage Grey.

It's Model Master stock #4766 (Acrylic) or #1733 (Enamel). Both are available at Testor's web site if you don't have a local hobby store:

I admit, I've never used the Camo Grey on a Ghostbuster before--I bought it three years ago for a Polar Lights USS Enterprise I still haven't built yet. :lol: The actual color is a little darker than the internet samples made it look, but maybe that's just my bottle.

It's darn close, though yeah, the Tamiya might be better. I can't put them side by side to compare in person, though.

My only two cents in the matter is to always make sure you use a flat paint, never use a gloss paint on your action figures. It really does not "Shine" as a custom, no pun intended.

I'm interested in finding a match for the GB2 dark uniforms, weather it be mixed or already bottled. I want to shave off the leg hoses from the TRU box set & make some dark uniform slimeblower Ray & Winston.
