Revell 1/700 Colombo Express
« on: January 08, 2010, 08:46:38 PM »
I have started building this kit and would like to confirm Revell's colour instructions
The instructions say that the horizontal surfaces of the superstructure should be painted a leaf green colour. On a modelling forum this has been queried. A photo of some steps on a sister ship shows a light grey green shade
I have been searching for detail photos of the accommodation structure (I hope that's the correct terminology) but I can't seem to find any that cover this area. Can anyone out there suggest a place where these details may be found
Many thanks in anticipation

I bought this model for my brother this Christmas, I'm glad the colours are correct because I got them as well  :-)

He has one complaint though, He reconds he will have to buy some new glasses to fix all the "tiny" container transfers  :lol:

Regards

Bob

Thanks for the offer, Andrew. PM sent.

If anyone is interested; there is a thread over at the Finescale Modelers forum about this kit. I have posted some photos of my work so far. They are on page 3 of the thread.
