BEA colours advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all! 

hope you’re all coping well with lockdown, looking for some advice please, currently working on a AA Trident, looking to do the speed jack BEA scheme, I’m just stuck on what shade the tail should be, as it’s quite a strange blue shade looking at reference photos. 

any advice would be amazing please, both rattlecan or paint mixture for airbrushing would be fine :) 


thank you

I don't know if it's the same shade, but the instructions in my Airfix Comet in BEA markings says to use Humbrol 15 'Midnight blue' to paint the tail fin.

Xtracolor X550 is the only paint which matches the elusive BEA green/blue. If you are using 26 Decals it is a perfect match to the cheatlines. I've used the combination of X550 and 26 Decals on a Trident and a Vanguard with good results.
