[AIR] CF-104 paint scheme

Hello,
does anyone know a close F.S.Match for the overall green Canadian
Starfigthers in the 1970ies? Instructions call for "green 503-122", but
I do not have a clue what a good match would be.
Thanks in advance!
Frank

Frank,
according to Modeldecal sheet 23, "The CAF shade of Dark Green 503-103 approximates to Nato Dark Green or Green FS595a:34086."
Regards,
Tim Brandt

That dark green weathered very rapidly, so anything that looks close to you will probably be just right.

In fact I've seen pictures of ships with several apparent shades and states of gloss. Every touch-up will make the overall appearance tattier. On Pg.58 of Verlinden's F-104 book there's an overall green ship (#786) with a tip tank in the green/grey scheme. You can't see the port tank to know what it looks like.
