Hello all. I am building a f-16 block 42. I am hoping I can get some help on what color to paint the engine ? I know that the engine has carbon fiber turkey feathers. It looks black sort of. I am hoping I can get some help here

Thank you for reading this

Very dark brown, black, rubber or get some carbon fiber decals material. Up close you can distinguish the deep brown on the turkey feathers. I've built 2 -229 powered Tamiya F-16s, used Testor Enamel Rubber on the TFs; very good match. Been around a lot of -229s/block 42s the last few years.
