Roland C.ii colour?
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:43:27 PM »
Hi!

I started building EduardŽs Roland C.ii. The instructions say to paint it gray. Is that correct?

IŽll be building the whale/fishscale version.


Second colour question: should I paint the interior wood colour?

Thank you!

here's a wonderful color drawing by Will Boucher of the C.II.. it is Grey in over all color..


 here's another drawing from Will of the C.II in a light Blue overall color scheme


Both have the "whale face" on them.. so you'd have to reference the decals to the picture to decide which paint job you'll do..

here's a few pictures of that Eduard Roland you are building.. in the first photo we see that really light Blue:



here's another photo of the same Roland, now the Light blue looks grey...(probably from the lighting or photo editing me thinks..).  :o



I would follow Red Baron's advice about the light Blue..

might check out Misterkit Paint's "Gotha Bluish White".. that is really light blue... ;)

Thank you Dean and Red Baron!

IŽll chose between Misterkit Gotha Daylight bomber blue and VallejoŽs 907 Pale Grey Blue. Got both here.
