Zvezda TB-7 Soviet Heavy Bomber 1/72 #7291

Has anyone built the above model?  If so, can you tell me what colour #7 (sections 11-a, 17, 17-a, 25 and 42-a) is supposed to be?  There is no indication of this colour either on the box or in the build instructions.

I have assumed it is white (goggles on pilots and lower struts on undercarriage), but I'm not too sure this is the correct colour for the attached bomb (section 42-a).

I have checked scalemates to see if they list the instructions, but to no avail and have also emailed the company, but no answer as yet.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have the kit, but silver/aluminium would seem to be more suitable.  It's what I use when I need to paint goggles, and it sounds right for part of an undercarriage leg.

I received a reply from Zvezda about an hour after posting this.  The colour is metallic grey or metallic steel, (Tamiya XF-56).  Can't do anything about the goggles as pilots are in situ. However, I should be able to paint other parts.  

Thanks Graham for suggestion.  

Hopefully, Zvezda will amend their instructions for the kit.

I've got the Pe-8 boxing and it's right there on the back page of the instructions in the colour chart; 7 - Model Masters 1780 Steel.
