Good Morning
I am a new member to the site and find it to be excellent. I am currently building models of the Spitfire for a model show in September, and I am a little confused regarding the colour scheme on one mark that I am building. The mark in question is the PR Mk10. The instructions say PR Pink but I have seen in posts on modelling sites that it was PR Blue. Can anyone help me with the correct colour for this type.
Thanks in advance

I would say that it generally was PRU blue.

PR Pink was not very common but has become widespread in modelling circles mostly I think because it is spectactular!

Best regards

PRU Pink was a low level colour, these were high level aircraft. Of the few photographs, one looks PRU Blue overall, but at least one has a demarcation and looks like the classic high level scheme of Medium Sea Grey over PRU blue.

Reports (and the Almark decalsheet) also described the aircraft as grey.

PR pink is almost white with just a slight tinge of colour:
There are a few models and there also was a temporary paint job on PL 965 where the pink colour was way too intensive.

I've read a descripton of PRU pink that said "white with a tiny bit of roundel red in". So yes, probably not very pinkish, rather a tinted white! My little girls do however prefer the modern interpretation where it is really pink!
