Question from a Canadian modeler

Recommended Posts

Passing this along from an IPMS/Canada member: 

I have a query that I hope you or one of your associates can help me with.  I have an old Revell kit of the proposed Boeing SST (~1/144 scale?) and I'm looking for a good paint match or a recipe to mix one for what I refer to as the "Boeing yellow", a colour Boeing often used on their demonstrators and prototype a/c back then.

If anyone can help answer his question, please post here and I'll relay it to him. If you don't mind me giving him your name, please say so in your post. Credit where credit is due, after all....

I'd be interested to know this too.

Has anyone thought to contact Boeing?

Don't know the exact color, but here's a photo of the restored Dash 80 in the National Air and Space Museum that gives a good impression of it:

I've spoken with a few people familiar with the Dash-80, and they seem to lean towards Chrome Yellow.

I doubt there's anyone at Boeing who knows, but perhaps someone at the Museum of Flight in Seattle can say for sure...
