I'm getting into Check Your 6, and have bought a bunch of stuff. These are the two aircraft I'm kicking off with.

Anyone have a good source for which Vallejo paints I will need for North African ops?

I will be building up a full set for the CY6 book "Falcon of the Duce" so I'll be back for more paint numbers as I work my way through the book. Blenheim IVs and a Short Sunderland (A beast of a model in 1/300) will be up for paint after the fighters.

For RAF desert camo I use 125 desert yellow, 135 beige brown (sometimes mixed with a bit of 134 tan earth to lighten it), and 67 sky blue undersides. I haven't done Italians yet, but a look here should get you some inspiration:

My 1/300th Italians are done as follows

Paint all upper surfaces Tan Yellow 912
All lower surfaces Deck tan 986
Camo blotches Mahogany Sand 846
Camo blotches Medium Olive 850
Wheels, engine, cockpits Black
