Acrylic match for VF-111 Red.

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Just wondering what the best acrylic paint match is for insignia red FS1136 to match the Sundowners decals I have from Furball.

 

I have a jar of gunze H23 Shine red. But I can also get hold of model master insgnia red and Gunze H327. What would you guys recommend?

 

cheers!

Awfully hard to know. Why don't you make test swatches of each red painted onto a test strip already painted in light-gull gray and/or white?

Ammo of mig Red seems to be a perfect match for me when I've used it with NAVY/USMC planes.

I can confirm that Mission Models Insignia Red does not match the furball red.  I am still searching for a match myself.

Hello,

I say the Gunze H23 is too bright red based on my blown samples. The shade of the Gunze H327 is almost the same as the red of Furball. I suggest a white base under the red color.

I used Gunze H327 for my build on Miss Molly, and I found it matched quite well. The tips of the vertical tails are painted:
