Hi all

I am hopeful that someone maybe able to help.

I am getting my head around building a RC Spitfire

To choose a lesser modelled subject I'm thinking PRU Pink.

There is the rub, finding the right pink.

I would appreciate any help or pointers

Thanks

I can only suggest you Google "Spitfire pink".

It was a very pale pink and apparently was supplied to the PRU units direct from the manufacturer. "Camoutint Pink" was never included in the RAF stores although the PR Pale Blue (Camoutint Blue) was..

Aeroplane monthly ran a feature about them a few years ago and reprinted some original colour pic's.

According to the IPMS **LINK**

The pink colour was "PRU Pink" and is available as an enamel from Xtracolor **LINK**

I have no idea what Xtracolor paints are like though!

Here you go. The photo is of PL965 which I believe is owned by the Real Aeroplane Company, but I can't find it in their list.

Thanks Lads for your fast response

I've done lot's of googling, several emails and visits to superstore paint shops with no success.

So I'm thinking take my best guess and go with that. What do you say.

Regards

The only other suggestion I have is buy a pot of paint from the link Dave supplied and have a batched mixed at a paint store.

If the plane is a good size then the frame can be covered and spray painted.

Ali had one a few years ago.

A very subtle shade of pink.

If you wanted to mix your own, you could probably find a very similar colour here along with the formula.
