  • Steel fuselage frame colour

    I am treating some rust on the steel frame. Has anybody found a paint code that closely matches the grey colour?

    Hi Steve, I e-mailed Rans to see if they do any touchup paint, but as usual no reply. Probably too small quantities for you, but I have now downloaded a Humbrol paint colour chart and I am going to see if any of those match.

    if you do find a match, please let me know.

      Hi Tony

      I rang Skycraft and spoke to Jim. He said they have used RAL 7040 but it is not an exact match.

      Good shout about the Humbol but you are right, I will need more than a tiny pot. I quite like the look of P031 - Matt Slate Grey. I wonder how big a pot you can get?

        Just to update this thread - I painted the frame with Grey VG18. It was not an exact match but it was pretty close.
