The Klingon model in the possession of the Smithsonian is grey and a kind of green-grey.

Models were often painted odd colors to obtain the desired color under specific lighting conditions. Many times it was just easier to paint a model one color and cover the lights with gels to obtain the color desired by the director and/or production designer. Example: The Vulcan shuttle seen in TMP...the model was actually a light lilac...but under the lighting used, it appeared the sandy-brown color seen in the film.
And the AMT model kit of the Vulcan shuttle, the original release at least, was molded in a (very) tan color.

AMT kits are worthless for that kind of thing as they'd often use whatever color plastic available to cast some kits, hence the sky blue, gray and white TOS Enterprises, and the black and chrome D-7 I got in 1975 or so.

^ I remember the blue Enterprise, with, of course, the raised grid-lines.

Don't remember any black & chrome D7, and I did have a D7 from the later 70's, it was gray.

I built one of the early 1970's Klingon battlecruiser models when I was a boy and it was definitely dark gray plastic with some parts that were covered in chrome. It also had, if I recall correctly, some translucent green parts for things like the windows.

The strange thing is how CG that looks. Fantastic design, incredible execution.
