Gents,

Based on the photo below, do you think the Tiger's head is the same yellow as the spinner? I have two sets decals for the Tiger's head, one yellow (kit) and one that is a yellow-orange (AM), but the spinner is yellow. Do they need to be the same color or are they different?

TIA

Brad

Were they painted at the same time with the same can of paint? Weathering and exhaust?

Theses look "pretty close".

There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

Insignia Yellow so I think it is safe to assume the artist used that color on both the spinner and the art work.

Seriously, looking at the photos, it doesn't leap out at me that the yellows are much if any different. Why don't you trust your perception?

It was also used for the 18 FS spinners and on the 54th's P-38s.

I was hoping to not have to use the kit decals, as they are Hasegawa, and in 1/32 scale, the Tiger decal is quite large. Wish me luck.

Cheers

Might work very well, and also a teeny mismatch here and there might just make it look more interesting.
