Hi David the colour chart in this link suggests XF53 as dark ghost grey (AS25) it would then be a matter of adding white to get light ghost grey (AS26). But as you know the right colour is unfortunately somewhat elusive. LOL

tell me about it, you would have thought Mr Tamiya would have produced paints similar to these colours and made it easy for us to find them lol
