Tamiya TS-67 IJN Gray?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used Tamiya TS-67 IJN Gray?  Is it a warm, neutral or cool gray color?  I'm looking for a cool gray color?

It looks neutral to me. If you want a "cool" gray, check out Model Master 16473 Aircraft Gray, or the Light or Dark Ghost Grays.

WWII German 74 and 75 grays also lean toward the cool side of things.

It looks pretty neutral to me, both the can lid and the bottle version (XF-77).  AS-4 Grey Violet might be a better candidate, it's one of the Luftwaffe grays Snake mentioned (I get my 74 & 75 mixed up)

I'll look at those other colors mentioned.

Is Tamiya TS-67 a dark color?

It's hard to tell from the cap on the can but I appreciate that.  Some of Tamiya's caps don't match at all.  The cap on the TS-32 Haze Grey is way off.

This might help. Since I migrated to Tamiya TS cans years ago I have been making paint chip cards when I try a new color. For the flat military colors I spray half of the paint chips with clear gloss.

At least you can see how TS 67 compares to other grays you might be more familiar with.

Thanks Steve!  I actually ordered a can of TS-67 and it came today.  It's the color I'm looking for.  It's maybe a hair on the cool side of neutral.  I like the color.
