Red Baron's Fokker DR.1 shade of red?
Posted by Murphy's Law on Sunday, September 10, 2017 1:41 PM

I'm getting ready to start on Eduard's 1/48 Fokker DR.1 and I will be doing it in the popular MvR's red color scheme (we all gotta have at least one of those right?) My question sounds simple enough.. It's red you dummy!!.. but what is a good mix? I'm using mostly Tamiya paints but I'll also buy whatever folks suggest ( just not a big fan of model master stuff) Thanks for the help

Humbrol has a dark red (blood red) for WWI German aircraft IIRC. I have not done a WWI aicraft since the Aroura series (50 years ago).
