Also courtesy of Mike Starmer: 10 parts 921 + 1 part 983
If you don't want to mix paints, 983 is a little light but is pretty close.
Cheers
David

Surely 921 (being the greater part of the mix) :scratch:

You'd think so Ratch but no, it seems that straight 983 is closer than straight 921 :o
I used to use 983, based on a couple of build articles in modelling magazines, before Mike came up with his Vallejo mixes.
