Over the past year or so I've painted a couple of F-16s and noticed that the Xtracolor Gunship Grey (FS36118) seemed very light. I put this down to the matt coat, but I've just painted two more and had the same problem.

I pulled out a fresh tin, and the results have been...interesting...

These are the two tins - definitely the same paint:-


Although quite clearly different:-


And on the models:-



Just to confirm I wasn't going mad, I checked my copy of FS595b. The first picture shows the old tin, the second the new one:-

She looks very good to me Chris! I have one standard for the vipers, as I have trouble seeing the colours right. I can see these very good however. I use Humbrol 125 for the gunship, and that looks good too. Minus is that you have to varnish all the paints.

Will it have shadow white tailcode?
