Here’s a quick video that will help you out when your paint stocks run low!
(This is a short test video post, that I’m using to see how I can embed videos onto this site and use them as part of longer construction posts. I hope that you like its albeit wobbly content!).
So you are in the middle of an exciting new project and you suddenly discover that your well-stocked paint draws are missing Interior Green, that enigmatic shade that we use so often to paint the insides of our beloved WWII American aircraft. Do you stall your project whilst you wait for paint to arrive, or do you think out of the box and create the colour as it was mixed for the real machines?
Grab your yellow and black and we’ll begin!
Though the video shows – mainly for expediency – the use of water-based acrylics, these ideas also work with lacquers such as Tamiya and Gunze Sangyo Mr. Hobby and Mr. Color. Here are a few images of models that I have built recently where the basecoats have been airbrushed on using a mix of Tamiya Flat Yellow, darkened with Flat Black to create the Interior Green shade that needed as construction progressed.
