      Hi everyone,
      I'm new here and this is my first post.
      I've recently purchased the Revell Boeing 777-300 and the Pokeman Decal from PAS-Decals.
      The problem is,is that there is no paintscheme for the blue on the Fuselage.
      I really don't want to "guess" how it goes on. I think then that the Plane won't look all that good.
      Can someone please help me.
      Greetings,

      Jeff

      Jeff,

      I reckon Tamiya X-14 sky blue would be close...

      Thanks for the awswer, but I have the paint I need.
      What I need is the paint scheme for the blue.

      Looks like you have taken on a bit of a project. I thought myself knowledgeable about Pokemon planes but didn't know about this particular 777. The PAS-decals website looks pretty varied though I can't read Russian. No instructions with the decal??? Yikes?? I'd look at lots of photos of the real plane then do careful masking before painting. The two Pokemon planes I've built were "pre-painted" but as could be expected needed to be re-painted after assembly and puttying. I used Testors Grabber Blue for the Pokemon 99 colors blue paint. For the masking I used a mechanical pencil to draw the lines on the masking tape and used a new #11 X-acto blade to cut the tape.

      One of my in progress projects is the Marine Jumbo 747. The Kitech decals are "lacking" and missing out the white tail parts. I'll need to figure out how to mask and paint those when the time comes to continue working on the plane.

      Sorry Jeff, I misunderstood you.

      You must mean the painting demarcation pattern then?

      If one isn't included, then that's an unfortunate oversight on Pas's part!

      ==========================================================================

      P.S.

      After viewing several photos, I determined the pattern to be like this:



      All other white shapes are provided as decals.

      Perfect... One question though.
      Is the pattern the same on the other side?
      @ Ken... yeah it'll be a challenge, but then again anything else would get boring.

      Yes, it's a mirror image on the other side.
