I am trying to be a little pro active this coming year and thinking ahead to a couple of projects I want to tackle . So I have a question for you knowledgeable types..
What colour Grey do the RNZAF use for thier Low Viz scheme Hercs?
Also maybe Hadley might be able to help on this one...What green do they use on Apache Choppers? Sometimes it almost looks black....Or is that just exposure to the elements?
Anyways..Cheers for any help!
The Hercs are FS26118 gunship grey (same as FS36118 but matt, which can be fixed with a final matt coat). The Apaches are painted US Army Helo Drab FS34031 but this colour varies a huge amount depending on weathering etc. Here's a link to various paint manufacturers etc,
. Best way to go would be find the example you want to do and mix until it looks right.
Cheers guys..The Herc is actually an AC-130 Spooky that I want to do as a "What If" . I am actually thinking I may do it "Have Glass"...well I was but it seems Mr.Paint wont ship here anymore..Or BNA...

It's true. After being messed around by Lucky Model with my latest order for Mr. Metal paints, I asked BNA if there was any way they could send my Mr. Metal paints by surface. They replied along the lines of not being allowed to send overseas anymore due to a restriction by their forwarder.
There's always a way around it though. I might order some, have them sent to my mates in Perth and get them to send them to me. A long way to go, I know, but at least BNA have them in stock. Lucky Model state they are 2 - 6 weeks for restock, but I have waited approx 4 months.
That may be the way to go.. I was wondering if going the youshop route might work also..Buy from a supplier in the UK or the states....but I will have to look into NZ Post's shipping restrictions. Does anyone know if anyone in NZ is trying to become Mr.Paint Stockists? I have used them and they are awesome.. somebody is missing a trick cause they are getting pretty popular!

I do believe that an NZ distributor is coming though
Cheers Gary. I did try the main site in Europe but it had no shipping option and wouldn't let you progress further..something mustve changed because I used to get them there...anyway..I will give Uschi a go>
Darn, I was thinking of getting some Mr Paint to try from BNA. Oh well, I'll wait and see how you get on in obtaining the paint.
I'm looking forward to trying out my AK Extreme metal paints over the holiday break after looking at Ian's results with the same at the Armistice show. I'll just have to find a kit to build that has an NMF.
So I have just received and paid the invoice on ebay from cro-hobby in Croatia for MRP FS36118 & Have Glass... $30 NZD shipped..very close to what BNA would have charged if they would ship. Fingers crossed it will get here ok!
