BS381C-172 Pale Roundel Blue and -454 Pale Roundel Pink now finished - at last! (plus stuff about roundel masks)


Recommended Posts

It's taken us a while during this bizarre year but our new products for DuPont 71-013 US Equivalent Dark Green and DuPont 71-035 US Equivalent Dark Earth will be available by next weekend. These will compliment the 71-021 Sky Type S Grey which I think we were the first to make a specific paint match for, and together these will capture the different appearance that some US built types built in RAF Temperate Land Scheme exhibited as compared to the British paints.

 

Infact there will be a few more new paints added to the range about the same time:

 

BS381C-110 Roundel Blue for post war RAF aircraft (hi-viz)

BS381C-172 Pale Roundel Blue for post war RAF aircraft (lo-viz)

BS381C-454 Pale Roundel Pink for post war RAF aircraft (lo-viz)

 

In addition, we're adding WWI German Mauve which completes the trio required for types such as the Albatross D.V in it's typical scheme of wood coloured fuselage with olive and mauve upper surfaces on the wings with pale blue underneath.

 

Lastly our new Primrose Yellow for inter-war Royal Navy East Indies Station cruisers, sloops etc is coming.

I've had these since Christmas, but finally got round to decanting them last night so they're available at long last.

 

When I made the vinyl masks for my Canberra I rescaled and laid out some mask sets in different scales but did nothing with them beyond that. What do you all think - any point?
