WW 1 Trim Paint Colours

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am currently building and getting to the finishing stages of a BE12A WW 1 biplane. I am looking for help in finding the proper red, white and blue colours to use for painting the roundels and tails of the plane. Ideally the colour codes for something in the Tamiya/Humbrol/Testors, or equivalent or ones that can be found at a hardware store that would be close matches, if there are any.

Re: WW 1 Trim Paint Colours

I bought some Acrylic Latex Enamel from www.clarkindustries.on.ca for a DHC82
but the shade of the Royal Factory B.E.12 colour blue on the roundels is a
lighter blue. You can always phone him 905 936 2131 he may be of some help
to you.
Kit builders are a dying breed
