Painting yellow and blue on American trainers of the late 30's

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Need a little help please. I'm trying to match up the Blue and Yellow colours that were used on American training aircraft of the 1930's. I know that there was a light blue and a slightly darker blue. The yellow has been described as an Orange Yellow. I know that Tamiya do a rattle can no 23 that's supposed to match the lighter blue but any help would be appreciated.

Stay safe out there.

Cheers

Joe M

This might complicate your question. But e.g. Fairchild had their own shades of blue and yellow that were used on the Cornells. I have a description on these shades somewhere, as the same colours were used on Norwegian  Cornells at the training base in Canada.

Hi Nils,

I would be interested in this information as well.

But the main information that I'm looking for is taking place on the Interwar years forum. So Nils if you would like to reply here I will look out for it, but otherwise guys thanks for looking at this post but otherwise consider this post closed.

Cheers

Joe M
