Forgot most of my FS numbers for SEA camo except that 34079 is the dark green in the scheme.

Here's a good photo site that might be of some use for y'all

The decal line that was carried by the folks at BareMetal Foil...Experts Choice...had two seperate sheets that covered SEA schemed F-100s. I used the decals on my Monogram Hun and they really look sharp. Not sure if they are still available but here is their website. The F-100 decals ARE still listed, with photos of the sheets.

The colors for the SEA scheme are Dark Green, Medium Green and Dark Tan. The exact FS color numbers escape me at the moment but the numbers won't help you when it comes to Tamiya paints. I painted my Hun with the ModelMaster paints and as far as I am concerned, they are an exact match (by eye). I recall seeing a paint conversion chart online once that compared currently available paints with color standards like RLM, FS, etc. I recommend a few thorough online searches. Be patient, I know thay are out there.

The greens are FS34079 and FS34102. The under side is that very light, almost white, gray. Modelmaster lists it as camoflage gray. I don't remember the FS numbers for either the tan or gray.
