Hoping to start painting over the Christmas break a 1/350 Type 45 Destroyer and I use Mr Color lacquers. Trumpeter's so called paint guide calls for C73 Aircraft Gray for the vertical surfaces (the helicopter as well) and C331 Dark Sea Gray for the deck and the like. The boat bay and hanger look to be white on the walls best I can tell from photos.

My question is, are these pretty good matches or is there another colour (or colours) in the Mr. Color line that would be better suited? The Aircraft gray looks to be on the dark side. As I am colourblind, mixing my own is out of the question so I'm looking for a straight from the bottle solution.
