Colourcoats ACRN36 - US Equivalent Sky (Gray)
ACRN36 - US Equivalent Sky (Grey)
This colour represents a typical appearance of the numerous colours standarised (or standardized!) for manufacture in the USA to British Ministry of Aircraft Production specifications for aircraft ordered by the British during World War Two (n.b. this refers to aircraft bought and paid for by the British, not lend-lease aircraft which were finished in the closest US spec colours).
Du Pont 71-021 Type S Sky Gray and Spec 3-1 No.323 Sky Gray, being two prolific examples of US equivalents to British MAP Type S Sky, were used on the undersides of US built aircraft delivered in Temperate Land Scheme colours. The US equivalent Sky colours were used in lieu of the RAF's MAP Type S Sky (ACRN01). We have manufactured this colour as whilst the US equivalents were generally similar to MAP Type S Sky in contextual appearance on the aircraft, they were sufficiently different when compared side by side to be worthy of representation for model makers seeking accuracy. Suitable for Curtis P-40, Bell P-39, Bell P-400 including those sent to Russia, Grumman TBF / TBM Avenger / Tarpon in FAA service, F6F Hellcat I in FAA service and more.
The closest Federal Standard colour sometimes quoted is FS35622, but this colour is too light and too bright for US Equivalent Sky.

Please Note - We are unable to post Colourcoats Paint outside of Mainland UK. Please see our "Where to buy" for international orders.
Paint and thinners classify as flammable liquid and can only be sent via our specialised contract to Mainland UK as they are dangerous goods. The cost of this is rather high per parcel so we have a minimum paint/thinners order of 6 tins/bottles to allow us to reduce the postage cost to our customers.
The minimum order is 6 tins of paint or bottles of thinners or a combination of both. 1 bottle of thinners counts as 1 tin. The paint can be a combination of any colour and tins within coloursets count as individual tins. If you require any help with this please contact us.
We can send out orders of less than 6 tins/bottles but they incur an extra postage charge. Please contact us if you wish to order less than the minimum.
