Color red on the tail of the 40th Anniversary Dutch AF F-16

Recommended Posts

I have the Micro-Scale 1/48 decal sheet for the 40th Anniversary of the Dutch Air Force F-16. It calls for the tail to be painted all red-- FS 21302. I looked at a paint chip online, and the best I can tell it's a somewhat deeper red than insignia red, but not maroon. IPMS-Stockholm list did not show this color. Does anyone have any information on this color or what to use? I do have an old Floquil red (like a "brick red"). Thanks for any help. Joe Vattilana

I got out my FS fan deck and looked it up to see the real chip....it just so happens I just used some Floquil Signal Red on a model and it appears to be a very close match.

It is slightly darker and not as bright as insignia red. If you don't have that, I'd simply take insignia red and add a drop or two of black until it matches the color on your decal sheet. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the information. My local hobby shop didn't have signal red, but I'm going to try for the first time Tru-Color Flat Brick Red. I also bought a bottle of Model Masters Fire Red. Stay tuned . .. .
