Just my opinion, but I think it's a bit too light, but as they were quite glossy see how it looks when it gets a gloss coat

These are quite a bit darker

That's what I was thinking after airbrushed it. It is supposedly the right colour from Humbrol but it looks wrong as is.

I have managed to get up the energy to get back to the Shawnee. I have given it a complete spray of Hu159 and then a couple of coats of varnish, this has darkened it nicely and has taken away my concerns about it being to light and bright. Once the varnish is dried it will be wet and dried a little to smooth it out then decals and weathering will occur.
