The colour match. Of all the Fs595 chips, FS 21433 is almost dead on. This came from the top, so is the lightest of the three shades used, the darkest on the lower section, then lighter on the mid section, and my chip from the lightest at the top. Also the chip I have is gloss, but tends more toward satin, hence 21433. I would paint it flat 31433, as this would better suit the small scale (1/650). This was from 2001, I believe it has had one more paint job since then, and is due for another next year. There are some people saying it might be painted the original brick red, (red oxide) that, is being decided upon fairly soon. This coming paint job will be the 19th time it has been repainted, 20 times in total. The Heller kit seems to resemble the tower after the 1982 renovations, so is not accurate for the tower as it is now, or will be after the huge makeover coming now. March 31st 2019 will mark the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. I should mention that PYRO did a 3' model kit, they turn up now and then, and it would be modeled after the 1937 renovations.
