Good morning everyone..or evening, or day, whatever time it is when you read this...

I'm preparing for a build of the Trumpeter 1/350 Dreadnought in 1/350. They recommend Mr Color H333 "Extra Dark Sea Gray" for the hull. By the photos that seems just a touch dark however. I've seen some people recommend using Model Master's "Panzer Gray" mixed with "Light Gray" in a 70/30 mix, but MM Enamels take SO LONG to cure and can be touchy to thin with lacquer.

Would cutting Mr Color H333 with a bit of light gray to lighten it up for scale effect be better than going with the model master approach?

Thanks in advance.

As far as I can ascertain and after a bit of research, I think Mr Colour 333 is about right but 331 is nearer to the 1916 colour, well that's what I'm getting anyway.

Hope this helps.

Cheers, Jabb
