What shade of blue
Posted by Aggieman on Monday, March 21, 2022 9:26 PM

I am getting ready to build a WWII French fighter, a first for me. What is the shade of blue that forms a third of the rudder stripes typically found on. French aircraft of the era?

Humbrol 89 is supposed to be a good match for the color.


F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

Thanks Stik!  That does look like the blue I have seen in my online research for the aircraft I am getting ready to build.

Humbrol to Vallejo Model Color chart. 89 is supposed to cross to Vallejo 901. I take no credit or discredit for accuracy. Hit the link for other colors or copy paste as the case may be..
