I used the Mr hobby aqueous H46 Emerald Green, the actual call out is for H26 Bright Green, but I cannot see the difference and they both give Humbrol 2 as the equivalent. I didn't see the point in buying H26 when I already had H46 to do the cockpit colour mix.What shade of green did you use for the radome Dave?
Yes it will be undercarriage down and the cockpit open.I'm looking forward to thinking mine may be a joined fuselage at some point
Nice to see some positive progress here, will it be undercarriage down?
Thanks Neil, I am not planning to mask the camouflage. I will mask up the canopy and exhaust ports etc. and the underside/overside edge as needed but I intend to do the camouflage freehand with the airbrush. it will be a basecoat of the Tan and then the patches of light green, green and brown.Looking good, I have to post some progress pics on mine, not far off joining the fuselage now. Looking at the version you have chosen that camouflage is going to be interesting to mask out, looking forward to seeing that.
That looks great Dave, and has sort of answered a question in the back of my mind. I'm going to use printed PE on my next build, but it's nothing like the cockpit colour, so I think I'll have to modify the colour, as you have done here.Start has been made. All the sprues have been labelled with tags to make finding the right one easier (thanks to someone on here for that idea). The paint mix for the cockpit colour has been made and stored in a dropper bottle. Finally construction and painting underway. Still more painting work to be done in the undercarriage bay.
