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
