I was thinking how best to describe the colour depth of the sky blue.

Best gem example is the lightness of a Blue Sapphire to a Dark Blue Ruby gemstone.

I hope you get what I mean?

Vallejo has a nice "Deep Sky Blue" in their Model Color range, which is very similar to Citadel's "Enchanted Blue." I was thinking about using that as the base and then adding successively lighter coats in the middle of the windscreen. How does that sound?

That sounds pretty ok to me. Vallejo also have graduated colours which can be used for windows as well. Check out the number 187 (that's the bottle number), colour no. 938 called Transparent Blue.

Sounds very good, Vallejo can be applied very lightly in watered down amounts to make good gradients :)

@Eigle - Ooooh, didn't know about those, I'll be checking those out too. :D

Thanks eiglepulper, that's a very interesting idea. I'll have to try it and see how it works.
