  • Well it will depend on which airframe model you're building. If you're building a 130J if has the new 6 blade multi-pitch props with a red-white-red tip. Some 130's have painted tips, others do not.

     Currently on the bench:

    1. 1/48 Revell Germany Spitfire Mk.IX
    2. 1/48 Academy Spitfire Mk. XIVc
    3. 1/48 Tamiya Beaufigher TF Mk.X
    4. 1/48 Tamiya F-15C
    5. 1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle
    6. 1-48 Revell B-17G

  • One more thing. If you're going to paint the Euro Scheme, the tips were normally black, the same can be said for the current Ghost gray scheme the USAF is using.
