Hi all, I'm building one of each 1/48 MiG-21 from Eduard, and one of them will be in the odd Czech Black/Green pattern. I'm asking for any assistance in the following:
1:Color match for the Green topside color, or at least a name.
2:Color match for the Underside color, or was it natural metal.
All I've been able to come up with are some shots on the internet taken of an F-13 and a PFM where both seem to have seen harsh weather. The fading is very apparent and the photos were taken shortly after a rain.
Any help is really appreciated

Greetings, Miloslav, thanks for your reply. I apologize for leaving you hanging, life keeps getting in the way! As to your reply I have a picture of an F-13 in the colors in question, as well as a separate photo of what I think is a PFM as well. Both are Czech Air Force, deactivated and considering the overall condition they have both been stored outside. The colors intrigue me, and since the pictured aircrafts' colors are so faded I just can't tell if the underside is the Air Superiority Blue color or a lighter shade, or natural metal(doubtful?).
I will post the photo I have shortly, please check back this week. Thanks!

Okay, Miloslav, I finally got a shot of the aircraft put into a gallery for me, You can view it there. Still having a problem with getting it into the forum replies. Anyway, I will check out your links and get back with you in the next couple days.
My 35th anniversary is happening this weekend, as well as a bike show I've entered. On the same day. Some creative schmoozing is in order.
