Imperial Japanese Army and Navy Aviation Colour Schemes

Some colour schemes used by the Japanese Army and Naval Air Forces around WWII. These images are indicative and intended to help the customer recognise the colour scheme they wish to model, and therefore help identify the correct paints.

We are extremely grateful to noted author and subject matter expert Nick J Millman for his generosity in sharing information with us and providing technical feedback on legacy products to help us improve our products to what they are today. We strongly recommend spending some time on Nick's site for a vast amount of well researched information in much more detail than we can go to here.
