Scale Color

Postby salmon » Thu Aug 18, 2011 12:26 pm

I had a great discussion with a gentleman from down under and in our many topics we touched on scale color. It brought back many memories from when I would enter model contests. So I would like to bring it up now and see if I can get a refresher. How do you figure scale color or is that a bunch of baloney? If I paint my 1/72 Gato as an example, do I lighten it? 28%?
I remember some of the lively discussions back then, but never heard a formula to resolve it. Hopefully, after several decades there is an answer ;-)
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
