      Al,
      I haven't a clue on your paint match. For myself and others what blue are you trying to match (airline)?

      I still don't have a match however....

      If possible print a photo of the plane/scheme and make a visit to your local hobby shop to compare available paints to the photo.

      I'm certain that others have built this model before and have "matched" the paint. I believe that the decals can be an issue and the blue will bleed through the white decals unless one uses two sets of them.


      Good luck....

      Ken

      Mr. Hobby/Mr. Color 322 is the paint you need. Go to Michigan Toy Soldier website, they have it in stock.

      Yes Mr Color 322 is the exact color you need. I just built the 767 version of the whale scheme and used that paint. I got mine from Spraygunners online but Hobbytown USA carries it too. I agree with having to use two decals to cover the blue with the white parts in some areas. I didnít and wished I had or masked it off and painted the white on. If I can ever figure out how to load pictures to this site, Iíll post the 767 I did. Also use Mr Color leveling thinner too. It evens everything out and produces a nice clean finish. Hope this helps
