Here she is nearly ready for primer, all I need to do is glue the canopy and the front bomb aimers window and mask all the clear parts.  I haven't glue the wings in place yet but the fit is so good and tight that I might not, not gluing will also make painting much easier.

I finally managed time to get the primer on, next steps are to add colour and bring this bird to life.

The main colours are aluminum, white and sky grey which are easy, I having a hard time locating the "daglow" or "dayglo" red for the wing tips and horizontal stabilizers.  Has anybody used this colour before or have any suggestions? 

Thanks

Exciting point in the project. Are you sure it’s a dayglo paint you need? Same as fluorescent? Homestores usually carry it as “marking paint” construction people use it to mark the ground with fir all kinds of projects.

Hi Ted, to me it looks like a mix of fluorescent red and orange but the instructions (circled in red below) call for "daglo red".  I'm just checking to see what others have used for these types of schemes.  If all else fails I'll go with fluorescent red as to me it looks the closest to what I need.

Glad you posted the image. Man that is going to be a beautiful color scheme. Maybe the day-glo color with a Matt finish over it? I’m in the dark on this one. Can’t wait to see those colors!

I did just a bit of digging around and found out quite a bit about Canada's air rescue and search aircraft. Here is a picture of a recent airbus plane they bought. Appears there was a disagreement over paint scheme. Some wanted to move to a tactical gray overall color but the government saw that as an attempt to prep the planes to be used in multi-role situations--as in using them for combat and pure military missions. The decision was to stay with the yellow as the base color. That red-ish marking color is interesting and definitely visible.

Well, this weekend I took a trip to my LHS to ask about the "daglo red" paint that I've been looking for.  After talking to the guys for a bit they assured me that this is the colour I needed.  The paint is a model master acrylic and it's called "Fluorescent Red" but to me it looks very orange.  He showed me pictures online of several planes and how the different light makes it look either red or orange so I bought a bottle and will give it a shot.

Here is the bottle, what colour do you think it is???

I've seen 'day-glo' paint on aircraft, and yes, that does look about right, to me at least.

Looks pretty orange to me. And I should know, just had kings day in the Netherlands (Google it) 😂

Maybe a little test to compare with the decals would help?

I will say that as it appears in the bottle it does look orange to me. It is labeled red fluorescent and the label even uses an American Indian word rouge which means red. I have found myself fooled over and over by paint designations vs what my eye thought a color was. Nato black is really a flat dark gray for example. Looks like it is time for a leap of faith? Fabian made a good suggestion. Paint something that you can use as a test piece and compare. Best wishes. As I wrote earlier in this thread, the difference might be when you cover the fluorescent red with a Matt varnish or similar?

I managed to find time last night to spray the lighter of the two natural metal finishes.  I used Alclad II Aluminum for this coat and next I will mask off certain sections and spray them with dark aluminum for some contrast.  This is by far the largest project that I've ever sprayed with Alclad and it amazes me every time how easy it is to spray and what a beautiful finish it gives, the only downside is the smell.

Here she is all shiny....
