ACRN36 - US Equivalent Sky (Grey)
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 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.
