    Paint colors on Special Ops C-130s

    Can any one tell me the FS paint references for the current two-tone grey Special Ops scheme please ?

    I believe the dark grey on the upper surface is FS36118 gunship grey and I've read the lighter underside grey is FS36293 but when I did a paint test (for a model build) the light grey seemed way too dark.

    Anybody help ?

    Cheers,

    Haydn.

    Your numbers are correct for what was called out on the MC-130E paint drawing for the two-tone gray scheme. This paint scheme drawing was produced by Lockheed Aircraft Service Company in the early '90s, but Warner Robins is now the weapon Systems manager for the Talon 1.

    The paint scheme could be different for other SOF aircraft, depending on who was the item manager at the time.

    Warner Robins initially did the gunships (H and U), and probably the Talon II. Lockheed-Ontario did the Talon I, the EC-130E,EC-130H, and EC-130J.
