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

Jeff :D :D

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.
