      I used Tamiya spray paints for this one. TS-76 Metallic Mica Silver oversprayed with TS-65 Pearl Clear. It looks better to the naked eye than it does in the photo, which doesn't really do it justice.

      Bert,

      The Skyteam fuselage colour is a pearlescent grey. You can achieve it with Xtracolor X367 Virgin Atlantic grey overcoated with X368 Mica 1. I did my KL773 with this combination and it looks fine.

      HTH,
