Modelers and your product line need a neutral gray that has reflectivity of 27%, in addition to the blue-biased other USN grays. As a vendor, do your business sponsors concur with deleting a model paint that your target market needs?
The sources of Colourcoats (first WEM, now Sovereign) produce three (3) USN haze gray enamel paints:
US05 - LATE 1941 5-H HAZE GRAY
US28 - #27 NEUTRAL HAZE GRAY
M03 - US NAVY HAZE GRAY
