I didn't have the correct Russian blue, so I went with Vallejo's German underside blue. It's bluer than this image would lead you to believe but way too grey.

There is much more variation in the white than the camera picks up. It was painted over a black primer after all.

I'm going white over blue. I don't have any white aircraft, so it will look good next to all the greens and grey and brown.
