Anyway, it's an impressive collection of old and new greys.
What do you think about this solution?
I have tried a purely monochrome mosaic in the past with modern parts only (bricklink colours: white, light bluish grey, dark bluish grey and black) and not been able to get the picture looking right with only four tones. Going to the old greys as well helped a little, which is why I wondered about yours. Adding in tans and browns and sand red and dark red does help, but then it is no longer truly monochrome.
If you were painting them anyway, why not go for shades of blue?
Regarding the choice of not use blue color, we have tryed some type and combination of blue but they were not satifactory. So we prefered to use a shades of gray, the final effect, in our opinion, it is better.
