    F-82 Twin Mustang

    What a neglected subject. Model manufacturers wet their pants for paper projects from the axis countries or even for the one or two examples of some obscure test aircraft, but a F-82? It's a shame. I hope someone in the industry sees the enthusiasm in the post and a dedicated decal maker willing to help out.

    Well that's a first. An analogy based on pizza. What's next? McDonalds? I would rather hear from someone in the VVS. Here in the States we can get reasonable and authentic proof from those who fly, work on or work around our aircraft. Are you sure you're not from Serbia? And note that I said GERMAN RAL Paint. Not RAL Color standard. There is a difference.

    It needs to be compared with a FS595 Chip set .

    Shion, I could probably make the same claim. Russia does not use German RAL Paint.

    Looks too Gray and not enough of the Aubergine tone. BUT, I say that only because it is next to impossible to judge colors on un-calibrated monitors etc. I went ahead and ordered a couple of the Russian Blue 1 Mr. Color bottles (Taiwan Vendor) for under $9 shipped. However, my plan is still to use the Mr. Paint unless I find it glaringly off.

    I recommend that you use the Lacquer based product NOT the water based. Adhesion will be significantly better. Trust me ....I know...

    I don't care one way or another. I have the Mr. Color and that's what I'll use. I'm sure they lighten up a bit in the Syrian sun anyway and I'll do some panel shading.

    Gunship Gray and like colors are perfect for the night.

    Does anyone (Berkut.....?) know what the current factory paint scheme is for a late production Fullback?

    Sorry Brad....no "word " on that one.

    What exactly are the Gaia series of Paints and why would I want them?

    That may have been the case but Kitty Hawk is guilty of NOT differentiating between two separate and distinct kits being marketed. Check out the photos of the sprues on Hobbysearch. Furthermore, they failed to inform US Vendors of that fact as well. Yeah, I'm pissed off. I spent $90+ and never got the freaking ECM Pods. I could care less about the spindly legged ground crewman.

    Thanks...not that I'll order another one, but I'm sure others would appreciate it.
