Cream would be close enough for me Jesper, but I try not to obsess over exact matches :sofa:

Humbrol 74 Linen is very close to Airfix M14. Though H74 is too strongly yellow.
I have always used H 103 cream for doped linen, which looks closer to the real thing, when fresh or new.
On its newest kits Airfix recommend 103 cream for the doped fabric.
H 73 is suitable for very aged, 50 year old plus, doped fabric.
