Hi

I'm going to be painting a Tirpitz in 44 colors in the Dazzle patten or the "I'm just a rock in the Fjord" scheme. But I'm not sure what colors best represent the grays of the paint scheme from the Vallejo line.

Any suggestions?

Very nice pattern! What scale will you be doing it?

Here is a review of the kit:

Its a pretty reasonably priced kit. I'm going to run a game of "Hunt for the Lonely Queen" in 1/600th so this will be my target!

My guesstimate is this -
Sides: Vallejo Silvergrey and Neutral Grey. Maybe even German Grey!
Deck: Buff and Medium Grey.
The kit might give you closer matches to the colours.
It is a very nice kit. I will put it in my "to get" list.
