 ;D I almost got this figured out guys, I swear..............

What would be the best color match for wing fabric from the "Tamiya" XF color line?? -- (I realize this is somewhat subjective, just need a suggestion or two to choose from).

Thanks.............Jim J. -- "olfogey"

Clear doped linen? Probably XF 57 Buff 50/50 with white.

"Clear Doped Linen" - (head-slap) - THAT'S what it was!
Couldn't remember that to save me when I posted - LOL
Thank You.........Jim J. -- "olfogey"

The colour of Clear Doped Linen can be interpreted in many different ways, it's a bit like the controversy about PC10, these are subjects that have been on the battle line for many years and ones that will never be solved completely. Your interpretation of CDL and PC10 is entirely your choice, what you think looks good in your eyes will be perfectly okay.
