SB2C-4 Helldiver Atlantic Scheme Question


Recommended Posts

Good day all,


I am building Accurate Miniature (or Pro-Modeller) SB2C-4 Helldiver in the Atlantic scheme and I have chosen the below subject:




The question that I have for this particular subject is; what color could the sliding part of the canopy be? It is obviously a different color from the Dark Gull Grey... My theory would be that it is a replacement and be might from a plane with either the 3 tones camouflage (pacific) or the overall Glossy Sea Blue. What are you thoughts gentlemen?

Either way the canopy frame is US Sea Blue. If it were from an overall blue aircraft it would be Gloss Sea Blue but as it appears to be matt I`d go with Non Specular Sea Blue from the tri colour scheme. 

Good luck with your model, I built one in this scheme years ago and it does look very effective.
