Phantom Pharewell colors

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I drifted over from the plane builder forum. I am currently planning to build a the Bundesluftwaffe  Pharewell Phantom (Image shamelessly grabbed from the masm.fr website)

Airdoc-F-4F-37+01-Pharewel-b.JPG

 

I wonder,  since the color call-outs are Honda vivid blue and Peugeot Heliodor Gold (therefore my post here), if there might be a dedicated airbrushable paint I could use in lieu of the mix described in the instructions above?

 

Thank you for any help in advance.

Hi Anatol, I don't know about aircraft colours but Hiroboy offer a colour matched service to car modellers here : Link   Maybe you would find something useful. Colours are supposed to be  airbrush ready.

Thanks Fastcast,

 

the point is, that the aircraft was painted with car paint - therefore the Honda Vivid Blue and Peugeot Gold I am looking for.

 

I'll look into Hiroboy's offer thanks!

 

Regards

Hiroboy do list Honda vivid blue in the Civic Type R section;

They don't list the gold however.

 

When I'm looking for specific car colours I also search e-bay for full size car touch up paint (which is basically what hiroboy sells)

 

I found this, but not sure if it's exactly what you want;

Hi, folks. 

 

Might be worth pointing out that this has been started in the "Vehicke" section. You could get a Moderator to move it to the aircraft section. 

 

Cheers. 

 

Chris.

I think if you read the original post it's been intentionally posted here as the aircraft in question was painted in car paint so that's what the poster is asking for info on! :)

@keefr22 thanks for the tip this looks very promising. I might just try to get in touch with my local Honda/peugeot dealer then ;)

 

Do you have any experience how well these paints mesh with a modelling airbrush? I am slightly worried that the metalic chips might clog up the nozzle.

Here in Finland you can get those touch up paints from car paint stores. Or on rattle can or kind of what you need.

They produce those paints from demand, only you need to know is paint code. And you can thin it with thinner,here in Finland they offer correct thinner also, in package size you need

Don't know policy of your country, but I think it's worth looking for.

The Zero paints are fine to use through an airbrush, including their metallics, which as I mentioned are basically car touch up paint in smaller bottles. I have used non metallic car touch up paint off e-bay, but not metallics I'm afraid so I can't say about the ones I linked to. One thing I should mention about both types of paint is that they are 'hot' laquers, so you need a good primer coat on your model and ONLY spray them in light coats giving them 5-10 minutes between coats otherwise you might run the risk of damaging the plastic. Also they need to be cleaned out of your airbrush with laquer thinner, so it could damage airbrush o-rings that aren't solvent proof such as PTFE ones.

If you can get the paint code from Peugeot, then Zero paints will make it for you, airbrush ready. They use smaller flakes scaled for modelling & pre-thinned for an airbrush. I’ve always had good results & got them to make me a BMW Stratus Mica which was delivered before I’d finished preparing all my parts

Not always in their standard range, if you ask for a pearl or mica special mix then they usually do. I've found paints just listed as metallic use normal 1:1 size flakes...

That’s interesting. The BMW Mica paint I used, the flakes were tiny compared to a Mercedes metallic I’d got from Halfords for a previous build. That’s about the only comparison I can make. My Lamborghini Oracio Metallic from Zero Paints also seemed to have scale appropriate flakes.

 

this is is what Zero say on their website: 

Quote

The colours are mixed using a formula which guarantees a perfect reproduction of the original colour. We do however, scale down paints with large metallic flakes to suit scale models.

It doesn’t say they scale down all their metal flakes, just the paints where the original has large flakes
