    Hi all,

    Just a quick question, does anybody have a reference for the colour used on the noses of 359th FG Mustangs? If possible, a Humbrol or FS number would be fantastic! Thanks!

    According to Squadron's Air Force Colors Volume 2, it would be green. Don't have a paint reference but seems similar to Glenn's (T-Bolt) Millie P build.

    If you do, the colours are said to be the Medium Green, approximately FS34259 ( Humbrol 97 ) for older machines and FS34138 ( Humbrol 131 ) for these newly painted planes.

    That's exactly what I was looking for! Thanks! I'll be popping down to the model store for some Humbrol 131!
