  1. Hi There Martin For my RDAF aircraft I use Humbrol 155 olive drab as a first coat then work with dry brushing with various greens. Kind Regards Craig
  2. A classic jet the F-100 and i must get round to building one myself i saw the RDAF ones often as they visited RAF Binbrook the former Lightning airfield on either DACT or i think a squadron exchange (ESK 727 or 730 ) in the 80s. I think a pair i will build a single seater and two seater of the RDAF will bring back some memories. Regards. Craig
