View Full Version : Help with aircraft painting

09-09-2014, 05:21 PM
I am doing a project that has a large carved blackhawk helicopter in it. I have no experience painting military aircraft. I need to know how to paint it without it just looking like a blob. I know just painting it black isn't right, has to be some sort of dark gray. Windows must be blue or silver maybe? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It's flat black. If you want dark gray, or faded black I'd try adding a little white with flat black or use a charcoal color.
Why don't you try "Fine Scale Modeler" Forum with your question..
The standard Army paint color for helicopters is a dark green color called Helo Drab Green
There are seven blackhawks for sale on GSA auctions with pictures and I would call them chalk board drab.
