I use the Model Master Euro Grey spray for my R-7s. It's a little too dark but in the ball park. In the right light, it has a greenish hue.

For what its worth, the actual color is supposed to be a blue-green-grey naval color but, as noted above, on film, the shade can vary greatly. In candor, I lack the enthusiasm to scour the warship modeler forums for more info. If you have a dark grey with blueish or greenish tint, you got it. For this reason, I've debated using Model Master Gunship Grey (like the back of F-16s) also.

But alas, Model Master paints are no more; get them if you can find them.
Identifying a problem without proposing a solution is really just whining.
