Modeling Information

  • For paint, Floquil Reading Green (solvent base #110183) or Pollyscale Reading Green (acrylic #414376). For the White stripe use nominal 20 parts Pollyscale Reefer White (#414113) + 1 part US Desert Storm Sand (#33446) - both flat paints - this is an exact match. 15/1 is too dark, 25/1 is too light. (Thanks to Walt Freedman who went out and matched the paint exactly).
