Grey-blue Color for Backpack Parts

Recommended Posts

Well, I don't think we'll ever find out for sure therefore I'd say if it looks right go for it. What makes the RAL 7031 perfect IMO is that it's color does change with the lighting (as shown in my intital post) from grey to blueish.

From the colors above IMO the "blue grey from Homehardware" and the " Rust-oleum battleship grey" are pretty close. The "Rustoleum Lake Blue" would be acceptable (again IMO) but a bit too much on the blue side for my liking.

I'll see if I can get some panzer grey and paint some bottles with it..

and yes, we'll never find out....as a lot of props were simply destroyed after shooting.

I guess this is gaining attention again. The UKG is pretty firm it’s a blue shade and not battleship grey.

What is the exact blue we need to us? Right now I use the Gray on all packs.

Well, I haven't seen any evidence that would contradict my findings ;-) Unfortunately most of the pics are gone due to photobucket and I haven't found the time to update all of them.

The battleship grey fits perfect IMO because you can see how it changes color in direct sunlight (rather blueish) whereas if not exposed to sunlight it keeps the grey color we can see in the unaltered 1977 ANH version.

Cheers

They are arguing that in all the pictures there is a hint of blue. I believe it's just the light making it appear blue. Here's a picture they are basing their argue around:

I used that battleship grey. I repainted what I originally had as a slate grey. The battleship is much better in direct and indirect lighting....in my opinion....

yeah well, if you use pictures where a color filter has been applied as a reference you will inevidibly get the wrong results. 

I'll post the original unaltered version of that pic once I'm back from my holidays.

Good. I have been using Gray on about 12 of my last packs. Just tried the blue on 2 packs and I am not a huge fan.

For probably 10 years or more, people have been using blue paint because that's what everyone else was using. Somethings are just hard to accept...  :thumbsup:
