  12. Airix Red Arrows Gnat Colour Query

    HUnbrol 174 is meant to be BSc537 signal red which is the trainer red used for example on the jet provost. Post office red/cherry red which as I said humbrol 19 is meant to be is BSc538 . There’s a problem though a as red arrows red is humbrol 238 but also BSc537
  13. What's flying over your house? Thread #2

    Nope, I’m down in Kent, normally go over at much higher altitude, that one last week was on Flightradar at 21k ft, think ones just gone over now though that one didn’t appear on the tracker
  14. Airix Red Arrows Gnat Colour Query

    I believe humbrol 19 is actually meant to be post office/cherry red, so using it is actually quite apt, quite a few of humbrols colours are actually meant or wore meant to be in the British standard range
  15. Haha, was Morereferring to those folks who like to use all bangs and whistles on the interiors and us 9 different colours to paint instrument panels rather than my paint by numbers job, happy enough with my standards, though always room to improve anyway i must start mine, now had a week and all I’ve done is primed the sprues
