I'm preparing Revell's Tornado GR.1 (very good kit) in Gulf war color - any help about sand yellow (British or Federal standard)? It's visible on posted photos that national roundel and tail flag are overpainted. Guess it's done on the battlefield. Anyone knows the reason? :-think

Thank you very much, No.1!  :-obey I've scanned this chip from FS Colour chip set. This is as close as possible accurate considering my scanner and monitor. :-think It may appear different on different monitors, but it's obvious that original paint is darker than same on the posted photos. If anyone does find this scan useful for making profile, feel free to use it.
