FF: Forks How black is black?

Hello all,

I have some stone chips on the girder forks, but the first couple of paints I have tried (Rustins and Humbrol Gloss Black) both look noticeably grey under bright light in comparison to the original paint. As far as I am aware, the current paint is original.

Does anyone have any suggestion as to a brand I might try that is available in small quantities?

If you're just touching up small faults, I suggest sticking with the Humbrol and putting some clear varnish over it the next day. May just bring the gloss up/ fill out the depth. ?
Cheap anyway.
