I've just picked up the revell 1/72 LA 5 and I'm trying to work out the colours of the main camou. The instructions say its light grey/blue and grey/blue camou with light green underneath. I don't use revell enamels so I could do with suggestions about alternitives. I use Vallejo, Lifecolour, Xtracolour and citadel acrylics only. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

thanks
Mike
