What is the true color of the 160th littlebirds? It looks to me dark flat green or charcoal flat.

Shades of black. NATO black (Tamiya colour) is what I have used for the interior colour of my MD500 TD. That has a slight green tinge to it but you can always custom do it with an airbrush and aging techniques. There are few stills left from hank79's thread but there is a video of it and that bird is patterned after the 160th AH-6's they use. Straight flat black is actually not the right shade in any event but look around Airliners.net and Jetfighers.net for lots and lots of examples. Hope this helps.

We use a good mil spec flat black paint on our blades manufactured by PWC that would work well. Their OD CARC Green is equally awesome on Reg Army aircraft.

Sweet.
Looks nice, I'am just about to order the RCA littlebird. I was wondering the same thing if the color was right, it comes in flatblack.

What mechanics, Trex 600 nitro??
