We are in the process of developing the RAF camouflage colors used in WWII plus the green used on the interior of the plane. At the current time we have 8 colors that have been identified to us as being the most useful colors that should be brought onto the market: Medium and Dark Sea Gray, Azure Blue, Dark Green, Interior Green, Dark Earth, Light Aircraft Gray, and Sky Blue Type S. Should there be any other color(s) that should be added to this list ? Are there any RAF WWII modelers out there that would like to help us develop these colors by evaluating R & D samples of the colors ? We would be sending 3-4 colors at a time with up to 2-3 shades of each to evaluate. You would get about 1/2 ounce of color to try. All would be air brush ready and have a matte to flay finish (if they need to be glossy for any reason you need to tell us that !). We would also send some thinner and acetone for clean up. Please reply to this thread to contact us via email for further information. Martin Cohen Tru-Color Paint P.O. Box 74524 Phoenix, AZ 85087-4524 email: [email protected]

The USS Ranger shown below is a 1/350 scale model built and painted at Andy's Hobby Headquarters. Andy used Tru-Color Paint for the hull (the anti-fouling red and all the camouflage colors), the flight deck, propellers and the small aircraft. He also used our Tru-Color Paint Masking Paper for painting the camouflage pattern on the upper hull. Among the paints used were TCP-1000 Norfolk 65A Anti-fouling Red, TCP-1010 Deck Blue 20-B, TCP-1012 5-P Pale Gray, TCP-1013 5-L Light Gray, TCP-1007 5-N Navy Blue, TCP-1003 5-H Haze Gray, TCP-1014 Polished Bronze and TCP-1231 ANA-623 Glossy Deep Blue Black. All of these paints are available in 30 ml (1 oz.) and 60 ml (2 oz.) size bottles. We wish to thank Andy for using our paint products to paint this model. If you wish to obtain more information on our military and detailing paint product lines, just reply to this thread, call or write us for the current flyers on all. Thank you for your replies and we look forward to talking with modelers. Martin Cohen, PhD Tru-Color Paint P.O. Box 74524 Phoenix, AZ 85087-4524 714-488-9779 email: [email protected]
There's nothing like having the original tech orders that specified how camouflage was to be applied to aircraft, both Air Corp and Navy, in WW-II. Even better are the exact specs for insignia and the dates when each insignia style was used. 51 years ago, Jay Frank Dial...a professional modelbuilder and amateur aviation historian...produced a thin book that summarized that information using nothing more than the original tech orders as his source. Jay passed away many years ago and his book has become virtually impossible to find. Since I knew Jay at the time he produced the book, I have an original. To honor Jay and to make that original material available to one an all, I have produced his book in a downloadable PDF format. It has also been enhanced with an index to make finding the information easier, along with ten photos of actual aircraft to help you see what the camouflage patterns really looked like. Viewable with an Adobe Acrobat Reader or print out any or all of it as a hard copy. Price is a paltry $9.99 and can be purchased by going to this link: http://modelersweaponsshop.freeyellow.com/camouflagebook.html
