Camo colours of late Indian Navy Sea Harrier FRS Mk51

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I have just bought the very nice ESCI Sea Harrier FRS1 kit. I would like to depart a little bit from the ubiquitous Falkland War camo, and the late Indian FRS Mk51 camouflage has caught my eye :

While the tanks and moving canopy look like they still are painted EDSG and white, I have no clue about the main camo colour.

Does any one of you know what is the colour used for this camo, and a corresponding model paint equivalent? Are the undersides the same colours (could not find any picture)?

 

And by the way, what are the main visible differences between FRS1 and late FRS51 (beside the weaponry which I am not going to use on my model)?

 

Thanks in advance!

I think it's one of the US Ghost grays, (Light Compass Ghost?) if @ChocksAway is about, he built one of these in this scheme. Externally, there is not too much different on this one and the FRS1.

Hello Dave,

 

Thx for the input. You are right about the Light Compass Ghost Grey, I have found @ChocksAway build thread, but sadly all pictures are gone :

Thank you again!

Here's a photo of said model from my club's website ...

I used LifeColor's acrylic Light Compass Ghost Grey (FS36375) for the main scheme and Light Gull Grey for the radome.
