THANKS! I was not aware of the painted details of the right nacelle. Makes sense though...The recent restoration was very well done!
Everything about this ship is perfect, such a timeless design. Nothing before or since has matched it.
I tried to post the most relevant photo's.
I'm coming to a similar conclusion. I just tried as-18 and think it might be the closet to my eye to the paint chip I made from Gary Kerr's formula. It's a little darker but not as dark as as-11. AS-11 seemed way too dark. I think I may decant as-18 and add a little white to lighten and spray with an airbrush. I might give as-32 a try as well before committing.Paint tests proceeding. Tamaya as-11 was nice, but a bit dark. As-16 was lighter but a bit too light, and both lack a slight hint of blue.... I have as-18 coming to test. I'm thinking I'll end up using 11 as a base, a light coat of 18 for the tint, and a light dusting of 16 to lighten it up & add depth & scale.... man, I can never do things the easy way.
