Any Tamiya paint users out there have a good recipe for making haze gray for a modern USS New Jersey? I’m aware they make it in a rattle can but don’t want to go that route. Also not interested in other paint brand recommends ... I’d prefer to stick with what I know. Thanks for any suggestions.

I understand modern haze gray is different than WWll haze gray, but I have started with Tamiya XF 19 Sky Gray and lightened it accordingly to haze gray paint chips (maybe add a VERY little blue).

I agree XF-19 Sky Grey is a good place to start. Of course I’m out of that at the moment so I experimented a bit. The following ratio doesn’t seem too bad:

3 parts XF-53 Neutral Grey
5 parts XF-2 Flat White
1 part XF-55 Deck Tan

One thing I know for sure ... XF-66 Light Grey should not be considered light or grey. It’s quite dark and it has a distinct blue hue.

I found this suggestion in another thread and it works great. I mixed a batch that I used for brush touch-up, on a kit that I spray painted overall with Tamiya Haze Grey:

Testors Model Master Acrylic US Navy Blue Gray M-484
Testors Model Master Acrylic Neutral Gray 36270

Mix about 3 parts US Navy Blue Gray, 1 part Neutral Gray.
