Can anyone help me narrow down a suitable shade of blue to paint a Silver Falcons PC-7 II please? I've been persuading an Aeroclub PC-9 to be adapted to the PC-7 II and it's now primed. The blue looks to be a dark blue, almost the same as Il Frecce Tricolori or the Blue Angels...but lighting conditions and post processing of photographs online results in a range of shades. I'm told it's the same shade as the current SAAF roundel....but I don't know what that is either.
Any pointers gratefully receieved and even though I get a bit retentive...sometimes 'close enough' is ok :)

The decals I'm using are the MAV decals which are okay - although the roundels looks a little less than ideal.

Thanks.
