Hi all

First, apologies if this has been asked before (nothing showed up when I searched the site)

Can anybody provide me with an FS reference for the grey used on the A-10 seat (ACES II I think?)?

 

Many thanks in advance!

@Steve McArthur Thanks for that Steve. I had figured that was the number but every time I looked at pics of an A-10/the seat itself it seemed to be a different colour each time.

Appreciate the reply!

@Spad One thing I've noticed on some photos is that it looks like some of the panels on the seats can be black, mainly around the top of the seat  Originally these were solid gray. I have no idea when this started. I'd guess the seats get overhauled and and replacement parts may be black.

Here the headrest sides are black along with the seat cushion, but the rest of the seat looks gray.  Photo is tagged from 2008.

FS-36231 is the standart color for US Government.

Maybe at the Collins Aerospace, manufacturer of the ACES II,  they have some paint similar to the GSA FS-36231 if not the official color.

There some differences should be occur.
