WW2 RAF Roundel colours


Recommended Posts

Fair question!


Perhaps to help narrow things a bit:

Presumably we are talking 'factory fresh'?

Allowing for scale factor or not?

And most importantly, which company?? Eg Tamiya, Gunze, Lifecolor etc?

Not too fussy as to which brand although I have a soft spot for Gunze products, any brand is fine it's the colour accuracy I'm more concerned with. Probably best to go with factory fresh, then I can fade/weather as required.
