Typhoon Paint

Post by EGVP » Fri Jul 19, 2013 4:55 pm

Hi all,
Does anyone know which colour Typhoons are currently painted? Before they fade or get dirty, that is! :P

Thanks for that, seems terribly dark, but it may just be due to how the light is when you look at one!

The colour looks right (for a nice new Typhoon out of the Warton factory that is), but there's something not correct with the actual shape of it - I'm not sure what though.

Nose is wrong, tail is wrong, but don't worry, it's that's not my fault! Sadly this is still the best FSX model going :(

Haha :P

Still trying to work out the right colour though, I thought it looked right as well until I compared it to some of my shots (these are unedited)

Will depend a lot on what Monitor and how its color calibration is.
I have viewed images on here on various screens and systems and not one is the same, if I use a few pc's at work then home or mobile or tablet or look on by Brothers pc,
none will look the same. so many variables of what we view on.

Regarding Typhoon colours, this link take from Britmodeller.com might help

http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/inde ... n-colours/

Although long winded it gives alot of information for the other opperators as well as the RAF. Please note to read all the pages as some data on page one is contradicted later on.

How this helps.
