Well, if you want to color-match, you can always go looking through the Games Workshop line of paints (seriously, who needs that many colors)? I know there was a guide to color-matching linked somewhere, but I can't think of where.

Also, color is the American spelling, colour is the British spelling.

You can't find the exactly match color but you can find look like one. And it is hard to paint with brush, if you don't have skill. If you can use air brush, that will be ok.

If you can't use air brush, I suggest that you should find spray can that have nearest color and re-paint every gray color part (or only chest part, but you will have difference color), this will be better than use brush without skill.

Someone on fgsite or a random Japanese image board posted it. Seems like a pretty close match, if not spot on.

I really like how they swapped out the black parts to the skintone. She looks great.

Glad to see you found your needed color, many of the older painted shinki have similar issues but as I recall strarf was more common with this paint issue. :|
