777-300er KLM Colors?
Posted by fishmanz on Thursday, January 28, 2010 7:41 PM

Hi all,

  I need some help.  I am going to build a KLM 777-300ER.  I received decals from Draw Decals and parts to make this from Contrails.net and I am eager to start.  My problem is I am not sure of the colors to use.  I have been looking at pictures on Airliners.net and I think that Testors Bright Blue is close to the top but I'm not sure.  Also, the bottom appears to be an off white or a very,very light gray.  I would really appreciate some help.

Thanks

It is probably KLM Gray.  The gray and the blue are both available from Xtracolor marked specifically as KLM. Not sure what the closest match if off the top of my head but I  looked at IPMS Stockholm's site and they don't say.  Tamiya's TS-10 is supposed to be fairly close.  Anyone else want to throw in?

Thanks,

 I found the paint on Roll Models Inc.  I did find a web site that you are able to cross reference different paints with each other while in my search.  I would think that it will be very handy in the future

Unfortunately that paint wasn't listed so I can't wait to get the paint to see how it looks!
