For the record(I) Hu.123= Dark Sea Grey, Hu. 125= U.S. Dark Grey. One assumes Hu.125 is an error for a green something like Hu.163.You might also like Hu. 164 instead of Hu. 123.(II)Hu.'s 127,128,129=US.Ghost Grey, US Compass Grey, US. Gull Grey. In real life the colours were, apparently, Dark Sea Grey, Medium Sea Grey and "Barley Grey" for which the Humbrol Equivalents are 164,165 and 167. The HU.65 silver is for the underfuselage tank and is a bit odd but possible. Check your references.

Usually called out as 163 for green and 164 for the gray for RAF birds..

Both tend to be crap to brush paint with..
