      that kind of depends. as far as i know they used 2 different types of blue. one lighter tone in the earlier days and a darker blue until the end of the classic JAT scheme. I think the main problem is, that it is a different shade of blue on every single picture.
      As far as i can recall (when i was flying JAT as a kid) , it was very similar to this:



      i would try tamiyas LP-6 and darken it with black step by step. On some photos it is exactly LP-6, but the real thing was a tin bit darker, i think.

      Which one are you building?
