I'm new to modelling and I'm about to attempt my third aircraft kit. It's a Japanese Zero (Tamiya 1/48) and I'm attempting to do it in a very wornstate. I painted the aircraft aluminium and sealed that with car lacquer (from Halfords in the UK) so I could abuse it well without going through the aluminium. I wetted down some salt and applied that on top of the aluminium finish. Then I've sprayed the upper surfaces the appropriate green let it dry for a couple of days and washed off the salt. Anyway enough explanation. I want to paint the red roundels on so I can wear them down (something I don't think I can do with the decals). Can anyone let me know the appropriate colour for the rising sun insignia? I've got various paint charts so any manufacturer will do. Thanks in advance for any help and I hope as this is my first post it all goes well and I can be an active member of the newsgroup.
