Howard, "rot" is the german word for red. As I recall from a review of
the Pegasus kit the colour of the flame shaped decal was matched to
Xtracolour X217 so that there would be no discontinuity in between the
painted forward fuselage and the kit-supplied decal material. I don't
think there is a close match in the Humbrol range. There is a colour
cross reference table which is posted to rec.models.scale. I'll check that.
