    Are the colours in the kit supposed to be used “as is” i.e. No specific mixing to get the right shade of red etc?

    Steve dosen’t really refer to the colours in his videos (apart from the insignia white). I would like to know if the red, grey, brown etc are reccomended to be used unmixed for the panel colourings?

    Cheers,

    MT

    Hi majortom,

    The paints are designed to be used basically “as is”, but as we explain on page 13 of Issue 48, ILM used overlays of various shades and some mixing will be necessary to achieve exactly the same effect.
    We will be printing full-size colour paint guides towards the end of the series – as well as the download reference photos.

    Hello DeAgostini,

    I just read this post from August. Are the full size colour paint guides available ? If not, is there any estimated timing for them ?

    I think they add up to under £20.00 but I would check these guys out for paints -> http://www.scalemodelshop.co.uk/paints.html (nope I don’t work for them!)
    I also find that they carry some pretty good stock of weathering paints and books on weathering, which although are for military models should work pretty well for this model if you are selective in what you are looking for

    I find MIG and AK Interactive paints are the best..
