Testors Model Master light gull gray??

  • While reading Paul Boyer's review of Hobbyboss's TA-7C, he says he uses "Testors Model Master light gull gray."  Is this color out of production on Testors Model Master line??  While looking to purchase it I could only find diffent ghost and gull grays, but not light gull gray.  And is Testors Model Master light gull gray different from Testors light gull gray (in the 1/4 once bottle)???

    thanks in advance

  • I haven't seen that color by that name by Testor's either.

    I (many years ago) used to use a Light Gull Grey made by Polly S.....Boyer may have meant that.....but then, I can't find that Polly S anywhere now.

    I'll keep checking here to see how you fare

  • Light Gull Gray is actually FS 16440/36440.  Testors lists it as Gloss Gull Gray 16440 or Flat Gull Gray 36440.

  • I used Testors Gull Gray on a 1/32 model some time back and I wished I had lightened it considerably with white before applying.  Especially on the smaller scales I would think the Testors Gull Gray would be too dark out of the bottle.
