Grey on grey on grey camouflage, will it work?


I am about to attempt a grey on grey camouflage scheme with my new airbrush! The model to be my test piece is one of my son's wargaming tanks (GW) and I have used their paints as I have them on hand.

I've used a blue/grey for my base coat over a black undercoat, which colour should I use next a lighter grey or a mid tone? When I was in the army we painted our vehicles green olive/drab with black and that was considered to be effective vehicle camouflage. At the time the official replacement for the old Olive Drab was a mix of green, tan and black but we never saw tan paint in my unit.

I originally thought that I would use the blue grey then black and then mix a dark grey but my son is somewhat against this. Having never painted up a model using just tints and tones of one colour as camouflage thought I would ask the forum if any of the members had done this before or had seen any images of this camouflage scheme on military vehicles.

Here is one of my GW tanks with a grey on grey scheme. I used Tamiya colours, but Citadel "Shadow Grey" and "Fortress Grey" would be a close match. The Citadel paints seem to spray well when diluted with Model Master Acryl Thinner
