BAC 1-11 479 ETPS Colour question

Recommended Posts

Hi, BAC 1-11-479 (ZE432) was repainted with the ETPS  logo in large letters on the forward fuselage. Does anyone have any ideas of the two colours used? It looks Gold ,with a grey shadow, but I'm certain someone must know the true colours :banghead:

Someone in the Bournemouth area should be able to answer that, the nose section is in the museum by the airport.

Thanks guys, to me it looks like a mustard yellow with a grey dropped shadow - but I stand to be corrected!

It's a Gold , but it gradients as well (i.e. the colour goes from a lighter tone to a darker one from the centre) Gives a pleasing 3D effect, but amkes it a horrid thing to model!

Thanks Dave, that explains why decal manufacturers are fighting shy of producing it. :banghead:

 

I'll just have to pretend that it has weathered!
