F-35 RAM Panels sheen

Painting my F-35 using Mr paints (wonderful stuff!!). They make a Have Glass flat coat which produces a very nice metallic sheen to the paint.

My question is, the larger dark gray surfaces have an obvious metallic sheen. But, the lighter gray panels (mostly the zig-zags) appear flat in every photo that I've looked at.

Do they also have the metallic sheen?? I'm worried that the lighter gray color could be hiding the metallic sheen in photos.

Thank you for the help!!!!

I'll leave the actual FS color determination up to you but they're just a regular flat gray paint (to my eyes)

They've looked flat, to my perception, at least:
