Hey guys,

On WWII Soviet subjects, which brand paint best represents the wood aerolak primer used?

I enjoy to primarily use polly scale, tamiya, and model master paints, but I'm just looking for the most accurate colors used in the offices.

Thanks guys.

I have found that Testor's F-15 Dark Gray is a reasonably close match, especially after a dark wash and drybrushing - it has just enough blue hue in the paint to make it interesting. I have seen British Extra Dark Sea Gray quoted in a few places, but it seems way too dark to me.
