This thread reminded me of a lot of "pain" I went through trying to get the colors just right for some that I did.  For example, I had what I believed were the RBG values of the J5 green tail, but when I put them on the plane, they just didn't look right.  I sampled pictures of modern reproductions, I sampled paintings, etc, etc, I mixed and matched to try to come up with the best compromise between all sources I could find, and in the end it always came down to judging it by the eye.  And then as soon as you release a paint, you inevitably run across a picture that you didn't see before that makes you hate the colors you ended up with!

 

 

Hello, Ice_Age!

 

Exactly. Just today I stumbled over some pictures, which cast yet another light on some of my Camels. The real pain for me comes at the moment I decide to let a design go as it is.  No more ‘but I could do this‘ or ‘let me try that'. Horrible! Decisions, decisions…

 

S!
