Ok I need a little help here. I have been looking around for information on the right paint color for a late 251/9. I seem to come up with a few different ones. The 2 that seem to me that might be right are a FS33531 which what I would say is a light sand or Tamiya XF-59 Desert Yellow . I have seen some refurbished one in what looks to be FS33531 color and then I see some what looks to be either Dunkelgelb or a Desert Yellow of some kind. I know the dragon directions call for a RLM Sandy Brown 79. Anyone can help or point me in the right direction it would be a great help.

Hi Mick.

Are you basing your model off a particular photo? If not, don't get too bogged down with 'what's the right yellow", no one really knows anyhow. Take Australian Leopards for example, in one squadron there would be 16 different shades of green.

My advice would be to experiment with different shades, I tend to start with Gunze Sand Yellow with a bit of Tamiya flesh to fade it out. I prefer to start with a lighter colour so i can darken it with postshading and washes etc.

I hope this gives you some direction.

Not such an oldy, but a goody. "Pepper" by Butthole Surfers.
..and is that really Tommy Lee Jones in the car at the start???
