That color is almost there. Instead of changing the Red/Green/Blue value, try adjusting the color by changing one or both of:

1) Sat (Saturation), which determines how rich or how pale the color is. A high value will make the color richer, a low value will make it paler.
2) Lum (Luminosity), which determines how bright the color is. A high value will make the color brighter, a low value will make it darker.

It looks like just changing both values a little bit lower (by 10 or so) the color will be on target.

Not that there is a lot to criticise, but, are the NATO-OTAN letters on the wings a result of mirroring,
and, can the OTAN be made to read as NATO again?

some member countries (like the french/flemish speaking headquarters country belgium) refer to nato as otan.

Also it is similar to this http://scale-spotting.com/displayimage. ... m=64&pos=1 so I figure he did it on purpose.

Isn't that basically pressing the S key and moving your mouse in blender?How about adding an antennea to it.

It can't be more simple than that. Zak, why don't you do repaints and planes instead of doing that, it only takes a few seconds to do that. Literally.
You can do a lot more than that.

Hey Zak, a subtle suggestion about the colors, I found a picture of a palette full of colors used by the USAF today, maybe this palette can help you with choosing colors for your aircraft. To get the colors, download the image and open it, try using the color selector on for example paint, and find the Red-Green-Blue values gepolyx needs. PM me if you need any help! :)
