    Um, one question: Whats's a 'better' gray? Are you going for realism, or something else?

    I know that Testors sells enamels that mimic real life army colours, they sell grays for the navy, military (models, of course, not the actual one i don't think :D  ).

    Otherwise, you'd be best off finding a shade you like and going with that. Personally if you're just starting, i'd go for an acrylic paint, for the convenience, but enamels are fine as well.

    A 'Better Gray' is like you typed a more darker, more realistic gray.The color Hasbro molded Grindor in seems a bit too light.
    I prefer acrylics b/c I have lots of experience with them. I was thinking of Testors 'Gunship Gray' Acrylic, so I guess I'll go with that. Thanks for the advice.
