Colour? I would say a light grey - maybe H64, but possibly lighter, depending on the setting. Anre you usind the 'copcrete' colour for a diorama or something else?

In that case its likely to be fairly fresh :) H95 was quite similar to beige/green :wink: maybe using that as a starting point and adding a little grey would give the desired effect :idea:
