Best colors to use on an F-22?
Posted by echolmberg on Tuesday, July 03, 2018 12:50 PM

Howdy folks!  I'm thinking of picking up the Revell F-22 in 1/72 scale at my local hobby shop today.  What's the best color/brand of paint to use for the radar dispersion paint used by the F-22?  I've seen where some people use grey while others say that Tru-Color Paints offer a "sparkly" color option specifically made for models of the F-22.

What's everyone's thoughts and opinions on this?

Thanks!

Eric

The light grey is 36251 and the dark is 36173. But they will need to have a little metallic sheen because of the RAM coating.
