Hi,

I've got the airfix 1/72 kit for this little beauty. The instructions say underside is vellum? Can anybody please tell me what colour that is what Tamiya / Humbrol etc colour to use?

Cheers

While I won't say exactly what the colours are here are a couple of shots taken at the Point Cook Museum a fortnight ago while at the Model Expo.
I have not altered the 3 shots but one is certainly a little darker than the other two.

Enjoy.....

Heinz, I don't think this is in the workshop, but is a second Hangar which you only have access via a caged viewing platform along one side.
Don't recall what aircraft is in the foreground will have to check some other images and post them for you.

The registration on the tail, VH-AML, reveals the aircraft as a De Havilland DH 84 Dragon. It was restored to airworthy condition at Jandakot WA. An old book I have says it appeared in a television mini-series in the 1980s (I don't know what).
Nice Boomerang photos Wayne.
