I’ve started from the cockpit. The most problematic part of this was painting – looking on the photos I’ve realized, that instruction doesn’t give any correct information, except some “neutral gray” color.
As you can see, the main colors are light blue, darker green-blue of instrumental panels and a grey color. Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything for the first two, so I did my own mixture of Hataka paints. If somebody is interested, here it is:
– Light blue is 6:1 of C709 (RAL 6027) and C284 (FS35520)
– Green-blue is ~2:1 of C228 and C284 plus white
– Grey is Vallejo 71.046
Kit comes with good decals for the instrumental screens/monitors (I’m not sure how it’s properly called, so please correct me), bit everything the rest was brush painted – buttons, knobs, seats, etc. It was not that easy, but I’ve had some fun. Also, it’s convenient to apply base colors with lacquers, and brush paint with water acrylics – in a case of a mistake you can easily use acrylic cleaner to remove it without touching the base.
