RAF Hawk all over grey scheme questions

Recommended Posts

Gents, 

 

I'm working on a big Hawk in the all over grey scheme. My decal sheet is calling for Medium Sea Grey over Barley Grey undersides. 

 

Looking at a lot of references and using Mr Hobby MSG as my standard, it looks too dark. Several other sites refer to the Hawk in all over grey being in Air Defense Grey, which I've taken to mean all over Barley Grey.

 

Could someone set me right please, what should be the correct paints? If I have to mix some white into my MSG to get it to match,  so be it!

Photo I'm working towards, the nose looks MSG but not the rest of the airframe:

You're correct the Hawks were officially painted in MSG over Barley Grey, I'm not aware of any being painted in a single grey, even for trials (although my memory isn't exactly conclusive proof). As with anything, start with the official colours and mix to match your refs

Could be wrong, but seem to remember some hawks with dark sea grey upper surfaces.

Just compared my MrHobby MSG to the Xtracyrlic one and the MRH seems to be considerably darker, so that's not helping.
