Hi, any help much appreciated. will attach three pictures though the quality isn't great, but hoping someone will get the jist of what im trying to ask. these are revell instructions btw.

1. when it instructs me to paint a part/piece what do the dash lines mean? like the nose of the aircraft, would that be telling me to paint the inside?.

2. in section 13 am i being instructed to paint all the wing? and then underneath represented by the arrows.
if so why would i do that if in the second picture that colours not involved in the final paint scheme.

3. On the decal page at the bottom (last picture), Are they meant to represent the rails that the bombs are attached to?

Dotted lines indicates paint the opposite side than what's on show is: if it points to the nose then it's paint the inside.
And for part 13 paint the wings as in the paint section as you have a swing wing aircraft it will be difficult to paint that part when assembled.
Last one you are correct.
And lastly happy modelling.

You have to remember instructions are written by some psycho, who derives pleasure by confusing modellers. :flushed:
Good luck, Peter has explained it well.
I look at some instructions and they make no sense esp if they are from Dragon. :smiling:
Hope you post when done .
John.
