Maciej Bellos Thanks Juergen and welcome! It's going better than expected! Long live the short runs. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't have some pretty interesting topics like this one.
31. January at 17:51:31
Maciej Bellos Let's start a big discussion here about RAF colours!

In the book "Northrop Flying Wings" it is revealed that the first XP-56 sported a three tone camouflage, using the same colours as the RAF Vengeances, built under licence from Vultee. Those colours were DuPont 71-009, 71-013 and 71-021, which are Dark earth, dark green and sky. For this kind of camo airfix uses Hu 29, Hu 30 and Hu 90. Am I correct to use them? There is a pretty good photo of the side the aircraft where we can see that the colours have little contast between them. This would imply a more drab-ish green or a more green-ish dark earth, with the former being more correct for me.

What you the RAF enthousiasts say?

Ricardo Reis Why use Humbrol???
14. February at 07:43:49
Łukasz Gliński Why not? ;) If you have a good ventilation :)
14. February at 08:08:42
Maciej Bellos Ricardo, Humbrol is the vast majority of my paints. Quite a few of them being 20-25 year old tins still going strong. I started buying some Gunze Acrylics, mostly for my jets, so no greens and browns in the stash. There is a long way to go in replacing my Humbrol stock. I know that Gunze are a breeze in cleaning the airbrush up, but they seem to be less value for money considering coverage.

Ventilation is no problem, I spay at the balcony, whether it's 5 degrees or 40 degrees :)

So what do you think about the colours? Should I go for it?
14. February at 13:33:49
Alec K Hi Maciej - If you are asking whether Humbrol Hu 29, Hu 30 and Hu 90 is a good match for DuPont 71-009, 71-013 and 71-021, I don't know. My hunch is that it will take some digging to figure that out. Sounds like you like your Humbrol paints, so ignore the following if that's what you are going to use regardless.

I am not sure how accurately the Humbrol paints were formulated to match the original wartime colors. A lot of new work has been done in last 20 years on understanding wartime paints colors, and on model paints consequently. I am currently reading Real Colors of WWII from AK Interactive, so this topic caught my eye. I am pretty excited about their new Real Colors range and the amount of work that went into their formulations. I have not yet tried them, but definitely on my list. There of course are other, newer options as well (Mission Models, Life Color etc.). Just food for though...

This is going to be a great build
14. February at 15:40:22
Maciej Bellos Thank you for the info Alec!

It's a bit difficult to get the AK line where I live, but I will check it out!

Not sure how accurate these are, hope it helps a bit though.

Maciej Bellos My modelling skills are not that good to depict a broken canopy, a pilot with arms flailing in the wind and a parachute tangled on the tail. So let's say it will look like before taking off for that specific flight. Or maybe at the moment the seat ejects, which should be much easier. I might push this project up the queue and do a dual build with a Marine EA-6A, since both are Italeri kits with the same camouflage, but different squadrons and eras (nearly 20 years apart).
Thank you for your interest Hans and I'll keep you posted!
