Dark gray plastic film covering

Does anyone know of a dark gray plastic film covering. Coverite, Ultracote and Monocote only cary a "light dove gray". I'm trying to duplicate this scheme. Thanks. Daryl.

I think you could get the same effect using matte dove gray and, say platinum or charcoal for the darker colors on the bottom. You could use a Scotchbrite pad to dull the platimum or charcoal before applying it to the model. Replicates matte pretty well. Or, you could use matte black.

Thanks Tim. I have ordered an Ultracote roll called Seafire Gray. I'm just waiting for it to come in to see if the color is close. The picture of Seafire Gray on Hangar9's website is poor.
