Re: SM-79sil Color Profile Question

Thank you. That means the aircraft as new was probably built by Reggiane or Umbra. According to my references they had the majority of SM-79 production in 1942. I glad that you guys cleared up that profile information for me.

Re: SM-79sil Color Profile Question

Thank you for your observations. Looking at the photos in ADI #11 and Osprey profile #8 I agree with your conclusions. What really confused me was all the VOS base with GAC mottling online builds and profiles compared to the Osprey book profile. I also agree that one`s builds should be as accurate a...

Re: SM-79sil Color Profile Question

Thank you. I don`t have ADI #28 so I can`t reference your subject citation. I do have ADI #9, and 11 as well as the 2 volumnes by Dunning as references.

Thank you Ricardo! You guys here on this forum are awesome with your replicas of the Regia Aeronautica`s warplanes! Your information is in line with my references also...In retrospect I should have shot the GM3 first and then mottled with VM3 for a lighter look. All the photos I have had the dark lo...

Ba-88 Color question

I am building the 1/48 Warrior Ba-88 for the 98sq`40 North African T2 basing timeframe. I have already shot the base coat of Verde Mimetico 3 with mottles of Giallo Mimetico 3. Are the color profiles in the Ali-Italia correct or should I use the Ba-88 profile found in the Stormo color gallery for th...
