British paint in NW Europe

Unread post by FieldMarshall Ober » Fri Dec 29, 2017 12:30 pm

I photographed the official camo for the british in MW Europe from, Mike Starmers book "British Army Colors & Camouflage in the United Kingdom, France and NW Europe 1936-45". Please refer to the publication for further details. There was a range of colors developed on Mike's information available here: http://www.militarymodelling.com/news/a ... -ww2/8821/

These are the paint chips that came with the book for what its worth. Bear in mind the colors faded very quickly and appeared differently within a few months.
