Extra Dark Sea Grey

Thanks guys for all the interesting information about Extra Dark Sea Grey colour.  I'm returning to this lovely childhhood hobby after almost 20 years... and I can asure you that I'm enjoying it!  I started working on a Hawker Hunter F.6 (1/48 Airfix) with the colours of the Chilean Air Force (Fuerza Aérea de Chile, FACH).  Chile had the Hawker Hunters from 1971 to 1994, aprox.  FACH keep the originals english upper colours, and Dark Sea Grey (Humbrol 164) appears in the Airfix instructions as the one... but it was not!  Actually EDSG (Humbrol 123) -in my opinion- is closer to the one used by the chilean Hunters.

The 1964 BS381C does not give L*a*b* value, but colour chip certainly has blue hue to my eyes.

Hi Jun,

I have been looking for BS 381C:1964 for some time now. Can you provide the remaining pages or let me know how to obtain the spec? 

Regards, Nobby
