  1. dnl42, that's a really nice build. The Techmod decals look great. Do all the stencils come with the Techmod sheet?
  2. I would appreciate that. Cheers!
  3. How was your experience using the Techmod decals? I read a post on BM that said their decals are very delicate, came off the paper in 5 seconds and ripped on application. But this could have been just a bad experience or a bad sheet of decals.
  4. I have a 1/48 Tamiya P-51B that I plan to build as an RAF Mustang Mk.III with Malcolm hood, although since I haven't actually built this kit yet I could just as easily build it with the standard P-51B cockpit canopy (the Tamiya kit provides both options). However, it must be an RAF or Commonwealth air forces bird. I'm looking for recommendations for after market RAF decals. I also have the option of buying a set of used original Tamiya Mustang Mk.III decals, but I have read these are very thick.
  5. What version are you doing? If it is the PK-G, you better take the Techmod decals. Tamiya ones are different to the real Mustang. I can tell you more if you are interested. Rav, I’m interested to learn more about the mistakes in the Tamiya decals for this aircraft. Nobby
  6. Progress is being made, albeit slowly. I am looking for help to fill in my knowledge of what changed in BS 381C Amendment no. 4 released on 7 June 1956. The previous amendment was no. 3 in September 1949 when there were 97 colours, and the subsequent change was the release of the 1964 edition with 93 colours. It appears that there were significant additions and deletions between 1949 and 1964.

  8. I'll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion.
  9. There were 12 new colours introduced between the 1964 and 1996 editions, 5 in 1980 and 7 in 1988. I listed them below. Can somebody tell me which were introduced in each edition? 115 Cobalt blue 172 Pale Roundel blue 262 Bold green 285 NATO green 363 Bold yellow 389 Camouflage beige 454 Pale roundel red 542 Ruby 564 Bold red 626 Camouflage grey (Barley grey) 676 Light weatherwork grey 677 Dark weatherwork grey I have amended my original post with the answer to my question (above) for anybody who is interested. The 19
  10. This is getting messy. I think I will edit my original post.
  11. I am not planning on publishing any of this in a formal sense. I meant that if somebody were to provide me with info, then I would be happy to share whatever else I have gathered in return.
  12. Circloy, I have no intention of breaching copyrights. Maybe my original post was misleading in that respect. There are numerous websites that show a list of current BS 381C:1996 colour names with colour swatches rendered in RGB, and some even show their colorimetric values. I’m interested in finding out which colours were added, deleted, obsoleted (?) by each edition. I don’t believe this would be violating BSI copyrights.
  13. Can anybody help me? I’m researching the history of BS 381C through the various editions and amendments from 1930 through the current edition. I am looking for key information (additions, deletions, obsolescent colours as well as colorimetric values) from the prior editions and amendments. I’m in possession of the 1996 edition, but would appreciate relevant information from prior revisions. Thanks, Nobby
