I have revised the paint, the graphics color and the wolf head logo. The older wolf head was too bold. The newer wolf head is hollow and less bold so as not to draw so much attention to itself. The graphics will be bright yelloe to contrast withhe pluim crazy paint well. Testor's ChryslerPlymouth/Dodge Plum Crazy spray paint is on order as is Testor's Metallic Silver for the wings. custom 727 plum crazy dodge hue jpg.jpg

I was cold as a witch's t_t last week, ice storm and rain too, but it has gotten sunny and somewhat warm again. The weather here is fickle.

This will be my long COVID winter indoor project. I will take pictures with my camera and post my progress here. The biggest challenge will be in getting those decals precisely located. The devil is in the decals.

I'm contemplating consulting this outfit to build me decal sheet when the time comes. My HP Office jet might not have very good resolution. I will design my decals in a bitmap program to scale and submit the drawings to this firm for a price quote. They can print the doors and windows for me as well.

Where can I get custom spray paints for models like royal purple?

I'm not an aeroplane guy. However, I have a mate of mine here in Australia who uses nothing but automotive paints on his car and truck models. And swears by them. So my thought is that if you can get the paint code for that purple, and it should not be that hard, then head on down to your local automotive paint/panel centre and get them to mix that sucker up and pop it into a spray can for you. Acrylics can be sprayed over a plastic prep primer without issue, and you'll have the knowledge that the colour is as it came from the factory.

Hope this helps somewhat.
