|Comments||The small size of this model *is* a challenge, but, after building every Enterprise under the sun, one that I found most refreshing.
This post is mostly an answer to John's color question found in is very complete review.
FineMolds uses color numbers (in the little squares) from the Mr. Color range by some company known has Mr. Hobby (a GSI Creos subsidiary). Don't laugh. These guys also sell something they call the "Mr. Linear Compressor Airbrush". They mean business :-)
Anyway, after a little digging, I found some pages (in japanese) with scans of the colors (if you feel like trusting your monitor to show you true colors), the kind of gloss, even some usual uses for them.
Here are the URLs:
Obviously, colors 1 to 40 are detailled on the first page, 41 to 80 on the second and etc, etc.
What? You can't read japanese, you say? Fear not...just put a babel fish in your ear! (here's the URL...just in case you don't know what the heck I'm talking about) [http://babelfish.altavista.com/] The translations are not perfect, but it gets the job done.
By the way, though the pages claim these paints to be Gunze colors, they do not follow the Gunze Sangyo mapping to Humbrol (at least, not the one I have). Keep that in mind while trying to find your substitutes.
Hope this helps the purist out there
