Morning everyone. I was wondering if any of you have found a good touch up paint for those dings nobody will notice but me lol. I am looking for the grey for B738. I'm gonna check the local hobby stores but wanted to get some input.

For any part that I have made for my 737 I use Krylon Colormaster Gray ultra flat primer which is a very close match for Boeing gray.

In the UK we have DIY stores that will mix paint to match any colour. That is how I touch in and paint larger sections in my set up.

You guys must be able to do the same across the pond.

Of course... Laughing
But you need a spray system to make a clean job.

The Tamiya cans are your best bet for small parts or even blank panels.
No mess, no brush.
