Hi there airplane folks, I normally build armour but today at the LHS they had an Edward I-16 and a Tamiya Brewster Buffalo for CHEAP! Anyway, interior colors recommended for the I-16, and what green and sky blue for the top and bottom of the AC. Also, I don't understand Tamiya's paint mixing ratio for the interior of the Buffalo. Are they trying to create zinc chromate? I plan on using Z.C. unless somebody can help with the right colors. Oh, I also plan on the Royal Dutch AF build if that matters. Most of the paints I use are Model Master and Humbrol. So any and all help is appreciated and THANKS in advance ! Tom
