Hataka Hobby has released an lacquer paint set: Modern Royal Air Force paint set vol. 1
This lacquer paint set is part of Hatakas Orange and is optimised for airbrush use.

”From 1990s (taking lessons from the Gulf War operations in 1990/91) the Royal Air Force expanded the use of "grey" camouflage schemes to it's ground attack and recce aircraft (including Jaguar GR1/3, Tornado GR1/4 and remaining Buccaneers) and BAe Hawk advanced trainers. Harrier fleet had not converted to "greys" until 1995, still using the famous NATO Green / Lichen Green scheme on GR5, GR7/7A and T10/12 variants. Modifications to "grey" schemes of RAF interceptors were introduced during that time, leading to Barley Grey adopted as standard overall colour of Eurofighter Typhoon force”.
