I meant I should design decals for other older kits and bring them to the attention of kit manufacturers - not that it is necessarily what happened here. 

Not sure if I will be doing another KC-10 sheet, but your subject selections are noted. Perhaps when I finally start that civilian airliner decals brand that I have been working on.

Apolgies for mis-reading your intent and meaning, but I like your humor.  Omega Air markings are pretty spartan, all black and probably easy enough to do on my ALPS printer.  No boom on their KDC-10-40, only twin drogues under the rear fusleage and the wingtip pods.  So I should start with an MD-11 kit (need the engine bulge for the -40).  A good freind flies their KC-707 tankers, so i will see if I can get photos of that platform the next time he is in town.

I don’t have anything by Micro Mir; not real sure what to expect from them...

Jonah,

If their MD-11 kit is any prediction; check out the MD-11 parts review by Viking on Britmodeler.  And MD-11 build log by Ridgeline on Britmodeler.  And MD-11 KLM completed build by Alex1978 on Britmodeler.   I can assume that we will receive a similar parts breakdown as Viking shows in his review.  Alex's results are very nice.

Thanks for the links Dutch, at the very least it looks as though the MD-11 engine design mitigates what I see as the weakest point of the Revell KC-10, hopefully that carries across to Micro Mir’s new KC-10 as well.

I am looking for a little help, and thought that this topic may be the best place at the moment. I am currently making the AMP KC-10 kit using this decal sheet to make one of the Grey/White schemes, but I have run up against a slight problem. I have got most of the kit painted and I have now started on the Blue around the cockpit. I have bought and started to use the Ammo-Mig paint No MIG-0229, which is said to be FS15102. But when I have painted it next to the photocopied mask that I using to get the painted area correct it looks too bright from the Blue on the mask. I will post some pictures showing what I have got, so hopefully someone with a better eye than me could possibly make a better suggestion. If a different paint suggestion is made it would have to be one that could be used with a brush and is available in the UK. Many thanks in advance for any help.

@Jabba29,

Yes, that is unsettling when the advertised paint color is nowhere close.  Looks like time to custom mix your own! Sorry, I have not even begun to think of starting mine, so I haven't crossed that bridge yet.  Dive in!  The water's fine!

K/r,

Dutch

Thanks, I thought that that might be the answer. Any colour suggestion Dk Grey, Black or something else?
