Military grey Orca fabric

I am getting to the stage where the biggest remaining question is what colour

Has anybody got a photo they could post up of a rib (any rib) with tubes in Pennell's "military grey" Orca hypalon? Not just any navy rib ... unless you know for sure it is tubed with Orca (which I doubt because something like a Pac 22 is probably made from stuff half an inch thick)

I can find photos around of Neptune Grey and the lighter shades, but not the military grey which seems to be the darkest grey available. Colour renditions on their website http://www.pennel.fr/pages/orca_fab_colors.htm are pretty useless!

I believe mine is their Neptune grey (in 866). I'll try to find some military grey pictures.

Would probably be worth speaking to Chris at Henshaws, they make the tubes for a lot of the Navy Arctics and Pacifics and I would have thought will know exactly what your after.

Thank you

I thought/hoped the military grey would be a little darker than that (it doesn't look much different to Neptune), but now cookin' with gas on the colour scheme

The patches on this are in military grey, same colour as the MOD tubes.
