RED LINE paint sets – acrylic paint sets optimised for airbrush

1) HTK-AS70 “Modern Royal Air Force paint set vol. 3”

In 1950s majority of RAF training aircraft wore overall silver livery with yellow high-visibility bands. In 1960s the yellow was replaced with much more effective (at least when new) day-glo orange. In 1967 the silver paint was dropped in favour of Light Aircraft Grey overall finish. This standard livery functioned for relatively short period and was replaced in early-1970s with the famous "tricolor scheme" of white (upper body and tail), LAG (wings) and Signal Red (lower body and wingtips). The scheme itself was modified in 1990 by adding Roundel Blue paint onto the spine and tail (narrowing white part to mid-fuselage stripe). The final change took place in 1998 when overall black livery was introduced, with Golden Yellow elements on helicopters and Tucanos (wing bands).
