Anybody have a "close-enough" acrylic out-of-the-bottle match (preferably Polly Scale, but anything else in a pinch) for the blue-grey found on the La-150 and La-174? I have the Prop & Jet kits, and am looking for a good match.

TIA!

Hi Matt! Was it different from A-36g?

Awesome, thanks for that.

It looks like I can start with a British PRU blue, and add some grey to it.

So, forgive my ignorance, the research shows that these early Soviet jets were finished in this blue-grey? Even MiG-9s and Yak-15/17s?

As I'm just recently getting back into building Soviet/Russian aviation (mostly post-WW2 for the foreseeable future) please forgive my questions.

This may be too late but...
Musa says use FS 36463
Vallejo produce a 'Sky Grey' no. 154 which is supposed to represent this
Alternatively I have seen a mixture of 3 parts Humbrol H34 and 2 parts Humbrol H126 suggested.
I used roughly equal parts on my La 150 see
