Camouflage, Colors, and Markings / Re: What colour?

When my Dad was in charge of the MT Section at RAF Benson, among other areas there, our car, a pre-war Austin 14 or 16, somehow ended up painted two tone grey and black.

Amazingly it matched the shade of the MT garage doors EXACTLY........

Heh heh heh.  I knew that would stir you up.

Nanna (or Poppa) Naps.

When napping I could never actually get to sleep until I read Churchill's advice and tried it.  Now, if I don't set an alarm I won't wake up for 2 or 3 hours and the day is gone.

You do realise that I'll have to steal that at some point? 

Coming from yourself I'll take that as a compliment ?  ;D

NMF?  Nah - 2 TAF FR with their type C1A upper wing roundels and PRU Blue underneath.  Much nicerer.  IIRC, the Trumpeter kit has the camera port flashed over.

What would be the upper surface colours if PRU Blue underneath?

The Trumpeter kit does include the (side) camera port, and a internal camera & mount as well. I did build it as a FR.14, but botched the port opening up, so was quite happy to cover it with the decal  <_<

Seafang - has to have the Korean stripes (Suez is far too late, unless it's an Isreali one?) with the high demarcation line.  However, that tended to move up or down, certainly on Wyverns, so there is precedence.  Personally, I'd go for the red/yellow exercise stripes similar to those included in the Special hobby Seafire FR47.

Yes, agree that Suez stripes are too late, and that a Seafang wearing Korean stripes as a Seafire Fr.47 replacement make more sense. The idea of a 'wrong' (neither high or low) demarcation line intrigues me (maybe try it out on a spare Sea Fury first?) and yes those exercise stripes are a definite possibility  ;D

I find having a nap can work wonders for motivation.
Darken the room and follow Winston Churchill's advice and undress and get into bed.  I set my alarm for 1 hour as any more than that and I feel like crap when I wake up and don't sleep at bedtime.


Absolutely, what Mrs_PR19 calls 'Pensioner Snoozes' work wonders for me too.  :thumbsup:

ISTR a certain Southern Region Crane Repair Depot where at least one car got a repaint at the same time as an item of engineering rolling stock.

A Tucano blasted through the base of the clouds over here just now. I rarely see them here as they're mainly based 'oop north I think.

You make it look easy Kit...


Whhhaaaat?  :o

That's 'cos you're only seeing the 'finished product' at each stage. If I'd posted endless pics of me PSRing the blasted thing a) you'd all get bored and b) I'd run out of space in my ImageShack account!

I admit I'm quite pleased with how well it's going so far though, better than I thought it would. One wing's still 1 mm thicker than the other one..............  :banghead:

Bugger.  I painted it interior green today.
I'll put some black over it when I touch up the undersides.  Vallejo acrylic paint goes on really well but it dries very soft and wears off easilly with handling and light grey primer is showing through all along the sharp edges of the bomb bay opening.
