Hi :) and help with aircraft camouflage colour
Posted by Gazza76 on Tuesday, June 05, 2018 9:47 AM

Hi everyone :) I'm working on an F-15A kit(an ancient Hasegawa 1/72) and wish to paint it in the air superiority blue-FS35450. However, haven't been able to find this colour anywhere. Can anyone recommend an equivalent blue? I use mainly Gunze water acrylics, but they don't appear to have this colour. Would an RLM shade be close to what I'm after? Thanking you all in advance, cheers :)

Welcome aboard. Can't help you with the paint, i just checked the Xtracolor range and even they don't do it. There is an online paint conversion chart which may help. But if you ask this in the paint of aircraft forum, you are more likley to get an answer.

People use Scalemates to research kits, but you can also use it to find paint brands.  Scroll to the bottom of the provided link to see the choices:
