  1. I am sure I am in the minority opinion, but this is the second Nationals in a row with only military aviation subjects (except for the LCS). Sorry guys, it's like there's no such thing as the Nebraska Army National Guard, any Auto racing subjects, no civil aviation lineage...hell, even a Nebraska State Trooper car would have worked to jazz things up.  Oh well...

  2. Just some advice on the masking medium. Not the biggest fan of 3M Blue as I have encountered some lifting and seep issues.

     

    Might I suggest getting a roll of Frog Tape Delicate Surface (Yellow). It's almost identical to Tamiya tape in lower adhesion and pretty thin. It is inexpensive ($5.88 at Wal Mart) for 60 yards.

     

    So what is the subject?

  3. In Model Master, I'd start with 1720 Intermediate Blue (FS 35164) with a little 1719 Insignia Blue added to deepen the shade.

     

    For the vest, 1708 Insignia Yellow should fit the bill.

     

    You'll probably need to adjust the colors using the color wheel to get your tones just right.

     

    Humbrol 109 WWI Blue may be a better off the shelf blue for the uniforms.

     

    I hope this is helpful!
