  1. Hi all, I have the Accurate Miniatures Grumman F3F-2 kit to start but could do with some help on the finish/paint call outs. The instructions say the fuselage was aluminium and gives call outs for G.S. Aqueous 8/Humbrol 56/Xtra Color X142 amongst others. The instructions say the wings (and I assume the tailplanes although that is not mentioned) were "doped taunt and painted with silver lacquer" which the instructions call "Silver doped fabric" but aside from saying this resulted in a "highly reflective finish, noticeably brighter than the fuselage" it does not give a paint reference call out for it. So two part question, can I use anything from the Alclad 2 range for the aluminium finish, I know there are various types (Aluminium//Polished Aluminium/Airframe Aluminium/White Aluminium/Dark Aluminium) but I tend to associate these with modern fighter jets and don't know if appropriate for an inter-war biplane or should I stick with the callouts on the instruction sheet? And is there a paint I can use for the 'silver doped fabric' finish on the wings and I assume tailplanes? The one stipulation for this colour I suppose is that it must be brighter than the aluminium fuselage? Thanks in advance, Pete
