I've been working on an RAF general service shed (hangar) and until I can make it to the hobby shop for more building materials I've switched tasks to work on the aircraft that will be going in the hangar. I pulled a 1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.1 off the model pile and made it through the sub assemblies with ease (something I am unaccustomed to with my being a strictly Revell kind of guy).
Now, rather then mess up I have used some 1/72 aircraft for paint testbeds (keep in mind I have been looking for the "right colors" for some time.
I have mixed the colors per the Tamiya instruction sheet for Dark Earth and the Green (which looked strange)
I have purchased the humbrol colors (which look nice)
I have purchased the life color pack (with the dark earth and dark green looking much as the same colors despite mixing very well)
Does anyone have any idea on the right colors?
I like this for a scheme:
Plastic Pics - HyperScale's Picture Posting Forum: 1/72nd Airfix Spitfire Crash Scene: "A Close Shave"
Both of the Spitfires built by these two individuals look very good.
Any help is appreciated, as always.
