I could really use some help please with paint colours. I’m rubbish at mixing colours so prefer to use a single colour where possible. I’m building the Revell 1/32 Corsair, I’ve been looking at the colours I need. The painting guide shows all three main colours are mixes so I need something close. The main top colour is blue but shown as 90% blue and 10% anthracite grey? Next up with an 80/20 mix Matt grey and Matt blue and finally 90/10% mix matt white and light green? I will probably just go with white here.
I like to use Vallejo where possible so any help gratefully received.

I’d go with the colours Dave recommends too. When I built Tamiya’s 1:72 scale version some years ago, I bought those to spray it in as well and I’m happy with the way it came out.
