Hi William-

The instruction book for the WnW Salmson includes formulas for the colors using Tamiya paints.  Is there any mention in the article about WnW's guidance?  I recently picked up the Gaspatch Salmson and was planning on using the WnW info to get the correct colors.

An interesting side note regarding the Gaspatch kit.  As mentioned here and elsewhere, the kit looks amazing on the sprues and all indications are that it will build up wonderfully.  Unfortunately, my copy didn't include the sprue that has the wings and struts.  I'm no WWI expert, but I think those parts are kinda important.

Hi Michael and Dave,

Alan and Lance's article is titled 'French Five-Colour Camouflage in Model Form' and deals with how to reproduce the appearance of aluminium-pigmented dope.? Apparently, 42% of the paint consisted of aluminium powder, by weight, and has a definite impact on the colors in model form.? Lance's part of the article describes how he has replicated the colors using Alan's info and input as a guide.? There is a chart he has worked up called 'Pigments required to produce camoflage colours' that uses percentages to mix the colors.? He also includes some tips and hints on reproducing the colors in model form. Well worth the read.?
