many moons ago, I painted an Enterprise-D model a couple paints that I really can't remember right now but the results looked really nice. I guess I'd describe it as a grayish light blue. I seem to remember a light blue that I thought looked too blue and a true gray color like dark gull. I lightened it up a little with white.

Trouble is, I can't remember the proportions of what I used.

It's a longshot but can anyone help?

One way I can think of is to add the gray to the white a little at a time until you get the color you are looking for. For example start with 10 parts white add one part gray stir it well, then test it on a piece of scrap primed plastic let dry, if the color is not right then add another part of gray, test and repeat until you get what your after, then wright down the proportions on the scrap plastic, under the paint chip you just made.

Another option if you want a grayish blue are 2 old WWII Navy colors: USN Blue Gray and Intermediate Blue. You might be able to mix the two with a white or light gray to acheive your desired effect.
