Testors Model Master light gull gray??
Posted by PBJ-1Hguy on Saturday, January 05, 2008 6:10 PM

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.

Kind of an old thread. I like MM Gull Gray. I've never compared it to the real thing, whatever that is on a deck in the sun, but I like how it looks.
