From Rob Monfea on the IPMS UK Board:

"Right, I've spoken to my sources next door in Eurofighter Flight Test and have gleaned the following information from a painting chart for the IPA (Instrumented Production Aircraft), which should also hold true for the Squadron jets:

The official colours are as follows:

Overall: BS381C no. 626 Camouflage (Barley) Grey.

Cockpit is BS381C no. 632 Dark Admiralty Grey.

Leading and trailing edge flap interiors: FS595B 36280 (Slightly lighter than RAF Ocean Grey).

Intake Flap interior: BS381C no. 626 Camouflage (Barley) Grey.

Intakes (Aft of intake flap - Inside intake ducting): FS595B 26492.

Radome: FS595B 36314 Flint Grey (This is supposedly an FS equivalent to Barley Grey, however looking at the real aircraft it appears to have a slight brownish tint).

Also of note is the canopy tint, Johnsons Clear with a dash of Tamiya Smoke should sort this!

Don't reply to the btconnect address - and remove nospam!!
