IPMS/USA Quarterly article

Post by davenport49 » Mon Mar 08, 2021 9:28 am

Digging through old IPMS/USA Quarterlies, I came across the following which may be of some interest:

"Italian Camouflage & Markings" by Steve Cook, IPMS Quarterly Vol. 18, No. 3 (Spring, 1983), p. 43-48.

...If same with Giorgio Apostolo's 1977 CMPR/GAVS - based contemporary Humbrol enamel color formulas then I'd read it given was IPMS #15018 subscribing to the quarterlies till 1991. IF I also known about VITO Charts Italian color research then still been difficult deciding which to rely on given I'd have to figure out my own color formulas this decades before STORMO Magazine et. al. Internet research resources came available. Too bad as well majority of my pre-2015 "Italians" builds won't past muster with research posted on STORMO since, precisely why ain't worthwhile posting photos of them there though will be photographing every single build for posterity beginning this spring.

Hi, Richard;

Nope, not dealing with CMPR/Vito/Humbrol. Cook gives brief history, numerous illustrations of insignia, illustrations of aircraft markings (data block, manufacturer logo, stenciling, etc.), and numerous profiles of a number of different aircraft. All illustrations are black/white, but may be some useful information for some.

...Then formulas were in another IPMS Quarterly, painted three SUPERMODEL C.202s with them in 1990, still have the models.

Thanks for the Update Richard. You should scan the article and post here, it should be interesting to see if S. Cook found anything new.

...Probably read it when was published; Squadron's publications already out then, likely used them along with 1960s Profiles as references for building Italian aero subjects prior to December 1992 when quit building till 2004.

...Took about 12 seconds. Prior to 1978 I'd not seen native-published Italian aero research publications for sale in local hobby stores & booksellers, 1984-90 came across & bought some, all given away by 1994, pined mainly for third-party Italian aero subject decals ETRL-ESCI & Microscale all could get hands on up till 1992 those I'd not known about before then came across via the Internet after 1997. From 2006 onward was able to get near all publications well as third-party decals necessary to build my Italian aero subject model collection, fate or fortuity that's how it worked out only regretting I'd not been able to buy the less than 20 or so long out of production 1/72 scale model kit subjects spent fruitless years searching for.

I'm surprised it took that long, the server isn't far from you in Sunnyvale, you must have a slow connection because it loads faster for me.
