For ground attack and reconnaissance aircraft in the early 1980's, the Dutch used a dark green and light blue grey scheme similar (but not identical) to the RAF scheme being used at the time. Does anyone have any ideas on exact colors the Dutch used? Thanks.

Thats the scheme used up to 1983, after that it is 3 tone grey and later 2 tone grey. NF-5 and F-104G only.

For the exact colours used:
-Underside is Mist Grey ( RAL 7001, Humbrol 128, XtraColor X135 )
-Topside is Dark Grey ( RAL 7012, Humbrol 79, XtraColor none ) and Olive Green ( RAL 6014, Humbrol none, XtraColor X251 )

Thanks very much. I'm interested in 1981, so that's perfect!
