I’m familiar with that mix of floquil  but mine is gone.

That's my mix too!

I still have some Floquil colors which work beautifully for weathered galvanized metal.

But brand new galvanized metal is very shiny. And really old stuff is sometimes almost
white perhaps from constant exposure to the sun.

I've no experience with Vallejo but many years ago, in an article by Mont Switzer, he recommended a 50:50 mix of silver and reefer grey.  I followed his advice, on a Monon steam era freight car, and was  pleased with the result.

Does anyone have a recommendation of a Vallejo color that would replicate the look of galvanized metal? I was going through online charts but nothing was standing out. Have to paint some steam era freight cars.
