The RAF at 100 - part four

The main fuselage colour is a brown/khaki as seen on many illustrations of the SE5a, The inspiration for this colour came from a book called Aces and Aircraft of World War 1 by Christopher Campbell. I have used the illustration on page 115 rather than the cover illustration which I thought was too green.

The model was painted with a custom mix of brown, Ochre and Leather acrylic paints and once again two or three light coats were used instead of one heavy covering. As with the earlier undercoat, the colour was streaked from front-to-back, in the direction of airflow.
