Painting Vichy stripes

Recommended Posts

When painting the 'convict's pyjama' stripes on Vichy French aircraft, is the recommended order yellow-then-red or red-then-yellow? I ask since I have the yellow in enamel and acrylic, but the red only in enamel, and I would find masking and cleaning up the acrylic easier.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Paint all of the areas to be striped in yellow.

Then mask the stripes you want to remain yellow and apply the red directly over the exposed yellow paint.

Yellow is a better base for red than white is....trust me.
