Looking for Mirage 2000 paint recommendations

#1

Post by TonyG2 »

Or more specifically, can you suggest acrylic paints from Tamaya, Revel or Humbrol that would be the nearest match to the French Airforce colour scheme of the Mirage 2000 from F-Toys in order to touch up areas that have been sanded and filled but in order to avoid a complete repaint.

Cheers!

A complete match would be incidential, I guess. What I normally do is mixing on a small palette/sheet of paper and compare. You only need a little bit and you can try as often as you want.
Besdes, depending on the original, sometimes the paint has been touched up, so a little difference may not even be wrong.

A good starting point for the mirage 2000 paints could be:

-light ghost gray (xf-66 tamiya, gunze h307)
-intermediate blue (xf-18 tamiya, gunze h-56)

Not perfect but quite close.
