picked it up in GeeDees Models in Nottingham for a quid a few years ago since it had the canopy missing.....quick email to Airfix HQ and one arrive gratis
you get two different schemes, didnt want to do the normal 2 tone green so have gone for the so called 'Tunisian scheme' which has a sandy coloured upper and a pale blue lower
this has caused a few problems lol,......know what the RLM numbers are.....know what Humbrol say use.....you try converting into Vallejo Air which is my prefered paint......nightmare!...having to go with something close
pretty sure i have some swastikas in the decal stash cos as normal the sheet dosnt have any
On the Vallejo Air paints - my references show that 71034 "Sandy Brown" is a reasonable match for the RLM79 uppersurfaces, and 71101 "Hellblau" works as RLM 78 (on the assumption that RLM 78 is the underside colour) Those are certainly the colours called out for the tropical version of the 110 in the new tool Airfix kit.
RLM 78 is indeed 71101 but RLM079 is sandy yellow 71278
either way i havnt got any of them so have got to make a trip to the shop
cant do anything major for a few days til i get some paint, but i think its going to take that long to mask the canopy!
