If you have any questions about our products then we will answer them here.
I think what Hank and Pierre are talking about regarding Airix colors/Airfix Blue-Grey can be seen in the follwing two links.
My favorite color is for WWI Airfix Germans, of which mine came in the Type IV Box. In the first link (WWI Ger) look for the machine gun base to see the best color (Note: some original Airfix sets came in a very Dark-Blue-Grey, and HaT-Airfix in Light-Grey and a Colonial Tan).
The second link is for all of Eric Williamson's Airfix site - It is the "Airfix Collector's Guide" to see all sets. Pierre can maybe see the Landwher and other WWII German sets in this attractive Blue-Grey color - enjoy:
Landwehr blue would be my favorite, especially if we can expect more Landwehr units.
anything but gray or tan.
Three cheers to the painting crowd that's willing to defer the color selection to us non painters. Hip hip horay! Hip hip horay! Hip hip horay!
I completely agree with Scott - 3 Cheers to everyone!
I am also fascinated by the excellent suggestions of colors made by everybody. I really like the idea of a range of colors produced, even within one army. This would make for a great collection.
I would even like to see the Crimean armies done in a few colors, as we've recently discussed, 17th Lancers in Blue to go with Heavies in Terracotta Red.
The choice of plastic and colors S*R uses is excellent. The figurines are always a nice, flat color which shows details well.
The CW British Heavies were the first set which really caught my eye and made me look at the fine S*R sculpting. Still, I love those helmets with the pointed front and fine accoutrement details and they remain one of my favorite sets (with other CW sets) to this day!
Wow, 1813 prussians in strelets output: a dream about to come true! Dark blue would be fine.
We're in this together, Scott.
If you non-painters didn't buy your share of figures, who knows how small the market would be.
I think a possible minor inconvenience with undercoating is the least we can do.
my choice would be flat black or a dark charcoal gray. the original HAT Uhlans were made of that color & it looked fantastic! i know a lot of people will dsiagree with this, but many Prussian units of the time wore black & it will be a nice contrast to the current colors to other army's sets.
