Hi guys,

My current built is a 2002 era RAF Tornado F.3 ADV.

My internet searching has indicated this would have been painted in BS626 camouflage grey. Can anybody give me an idea of what would be the closest match in (preferably) Mission Model paints, or failing that Tamiya?

Cheers,

B

A quick search and a bit of conversion I have come up with tamiya equivalent XF55 camouflage grey I might be wrong but a longer search may come up with something different.

Thanks Peter. So far I have come up with XF-19 (Flat Sky Grey) and XF-83 (Flat Medium Sea Grey), but I will have a look at XF-55 as well. :smiling3:

Cheers James.

I've emailed Jon at Mission Models to get his input, failing which I think I will go with XF-19.

I thought it might be a little light, but by the time it's weathered it should be ok.

I'm really surprised that so few companies seem to do modern RAF colours??
