What is a good Vallejo shade for WWI French Horizon Blue please???

I have used 70.901 pastel blue. Its a bit on the grey side, and I find it more 'trenchy' then a bright light-blue

I'll look through my trays of paints. I may have that one anyway, thanks

 

PS

Have looked through my paints and Pastel Blue is about the only Vallejo blue I haven't got

I was looking through my paints and thought Vallejo 943 Grey Blue might be a good shade. Have since found these from AK Interactive from Spain but Scalemodels,co,uk have them in stock

I'll try the Light Grey and Greyish Blue I think

They also do WWI British and German

OOPS. Just realised. I have an order in for Early War British and German but I don't have any French. What a mistaka to maka as Captain Bertorelli would say even though he was Italian and it being the wrong war..

Today I recieved my order of AK WWI British, German and French uniform paints. They are exactly what I was looking for.
