  1. I'm now at the crucial stage of painting the upper surfaces of my SH Kittyhawk 1a so looking for some advice please in terms of the correct/best enamels to use for the mid-stone and dark earth having opted for Humbrol's 157 Azure Blue for the underside as this looks about right from colourised photos of the period, accepting these are not entirely reliable My dilemma is that I have a number of brands in my paint stash that I could use as follows: Dark Earth: Humbrol 29 : Xtracolor X002/BS450 Mid Stone: Humbrol 84 : Humbrol HB12 (very old tin) : Xtracolor X009 : Revell 16 On cursory inspection the Xtracolor looks best for Mid Stone and the Humbrol for the Dark Earth but would welcome some advice. I know there are plenty more paint options out there that are acrylic but I only use enamels as they are what I've always used in the past and feel confident with given that this is my first model to get to this stage in many years so don't want to muck it up (hopefully not famous last words). Regards Colin.
  2. Hi everyone, these are two well-known shots of a Hurricane formation over Egypt that have appeared in numerous publications: http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205126797 http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/205190917 I have never known how to interpret the color scheme of the first aircraft. Apart from the fact that the two Hurricane closest to the camera appear somewhat lighter-colored than the rear ones (which might be just due to weathering), the dark area stretching from the exhaust rearwards on GO-G always made me wonder. It doesn't look like exhaust stains because it is far too sharply outlined. Furthermore, the dark area does not cover the code letter (in contrast to GO-J behind it). Can anyone help me? Sorry if this point as already been discussed a hundred times. Ole
