Is there a readily available spray paint that's closer to charcoal than a rich black? I need it for a 1/16 fabric convertible top and cylinder head. Sounds like something that military modelers might know about.

I like Floquil Weathered Black when I need something that shade. Might still be a bit too light for charcoal black. Hard to tell from a computer image, I know.

Looks like something I could work with, but it's in a bottle and not a rattle can spray, which I need for an overall even look, and I don't have an airbrush. I guess I should look at Duplicolor. Just wondered if anyone had used something like what I was looking for.

Thanks Mike. I've seen online examples of NATO black that look good, but someone mentioned it had a green tinge to it. Is that so? I ask all these questions because I can't afford to experiment with multiple purchases.

Skip, Tamiya has a lot of flat greys in their lacquer spray line. Can you post a pic of the color you are trying to replicate? I have several different shades of these paints in my collection and would be happy to do some spoon tests and post pics.
