      Building a AA B-720B to be finished in the Indianhead paint scheme. Has anyone duplicated the Beige color that often appears white? Or any recommendations on a mix.
      Thanks,
      Randy

      I had a 737 painted a long time ago (a LONG time ago!), and I seem to recall using Testors Model Master gloss white with a few drops of MM Radome Tan in it. As you say it's very nearly white, and it would be easy to over-do the beige tone. You could achieve the same thing with gloss white and almost any tan/brown color of your choosing. You're just trying to tone down the stark whiteness just a *little* bit.

      From the heading you mean "WA" right? And isn't it better described as "white color that appears beige"? I'd be inclined to use Humbrol gloss white out of the tin (thinned as necessary), and just let it turn it's usual reddish hue as it usually does.

      Unfortunately, American Airlines AA has been replaced with Authentic Airliners AA. Very confusing!

      Xradar, the beige on your Western 727 looks dead on! Thanks for the input guys.

      While we are on the subject....

      Didn't Western go to an actual "white" (away from the "eggshell" white) at some point before the Winnebago scheme?
      If so...does anyone know when they made the switch?

      Just curious.
