Eleanor tribute build

16 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I plan on building Revells 2008 Mustang as an Eleanor tribute. What I'd like to know is 1) What color was the original and is there a rattle can paint that closely matches it? 2) I can't tell from the movie what color was the interior? This is not going to be a detailed build, but I suffer from AMS so that's anybody's guess. Thanks in advance for any help.

Okay, ummm...I don't know how you are seeing orange, but the original Eleanor was code 2157 yellow.

The name of the color is Pepper Gray. If you look on the Eleanor fourm DuPont is the best match for the color.

Also the black stripes are not a plain black, it is a metallic black

If you're using rattle cans, I'd go with Tamiya light gunmetal and metallic black

I never knew that... I always figured it was Ford dark shadow grey.

And what a god-awful color it was.

Understood. I have a sister who is color blind. I would think though, with that condition you probably shouldn't be trying to tell folks what color something is right? I mean I'm not trying to be rude, although I'm probably coming across that way. But that's a bit like someone with no depth perception trying to describe distance.

Oh no war at all I understand where he is coming from 100% Honestly he is right. This is something I have to remember before I jump to answer a question. Sometimes my urge to help others like I've been helped overcomes my senses
