    Is there a brand/color/type of paint out there that matches the gray coloration of ROTF Leader class Megatron?

    u should just mix some colors together or use different base coats and dry brush on top with another to mix them well...

    i just did a megs.. (tamiya paint) i base coated him light gunmetal.. then dry brushed him oddly with regular gun metal.. then did another dry brush over that with black and then a last dry brush of aluminum... u should really just experiment around and find wat satisfies you the most.

    Im doing mine up in gloss black with testors spray enamel chrome with aluminum/steel and accent colors. The grey he comes in is so crappy. but you may have luck looking at testors enamel paints. Pretty sure I saw a grey that matched em decently.
