GDay Al,

Okay mate -

What answer did you get (if any). I've been using a mix of equal parts of
Humbrol 11 and Humbrol 64 (silver and medium sea grey) However, the colour
picture of a Belgian Nieuport 24 (?) on the cover of a Windsock a few years
back made me think I need a bit more silver. As I mentioned in an earlier
mail I'd like to move to acrylics, if only cos its easier to clean up.

On the subject of colors, has anyone had any luck mixing up a color to
represent the silver dope used on many nieuports? I can do Oils, or


P.S. I find that Poly-S Dull Earth Brown makes a good Brown end of the
spectrum PC-10.
