also a great example of Ortho film

Note the near black red and the very dark gray yellow. The blue becomes lighter, such that the fin flash looks backwards.

There is no such thing as an unbuildable kit, just some kits one may consider not worth building.

Not neccessarily - could also be a blue filter

Which would have a similar effect.

Any of the experts know if there are any colours/shades that are sensitive to one but not the other?

Not a commonly used filter. Used only to exagerate haze.

Ortho was a commonly used film in the UK

Odd, as the canopy was painted then put on the aircraft.

Repainted tail? An optical illusion

August 8 2009, 5:52 PM 

Hi Steven,

I think the lighter tail is an optical illusion. I copied an area from the tail and dragged over the gray areas on the rest of the fuselage. As you can see they are a pretty close match. Try it yourself.

[linked image]

The tailplane is flat, while the curvature of the fuselage might be the cause of the percieved difference.
