I recently bought an F-toys 1/144th OS2U Kingfisher in the above mentioned scheme. Its a beautiful model with an immaculate paint job, but some of the parts are still on the sprue and once I assemble it will need some touchup on the spots were seperated. My question is how close are Tamiya XF-17 Sea Blue and XF-18 Medium Blue to the the USN 3-tone? Please opine as I do not want to botch up this beautiful little model. Anyhoo thanks and salut y'all!
