Hi all,
does somebody have an idea how to paint this truck when marked with the decals of 7th armoured division in north africa? The instruction that I have does not give any informatoon about it. A scan of the scheme as well as color designation (Humbrol or Tamiya) would be nice.

M.Julian Marles Most instructions say desert yellow. Italeri, Airfix etc often instruct you to use "Mid Stone" from the humbrol range. Some vehicles were camouflaged with dark green or black stripes or splotches. The Squadron book about the 7th is pretty cheap and the desert rats have an official home page you can check out. ;)

MoJo Moin Christian,

die Humbrol Nummer ist 93 und in allen Schattierungen, die Britten hatte die gleichen Probleme mit dem ausbleichen der Farben bzw Staub.

Wäre auch ein mehrfarbiges Schema möglich?

MoJo bin mir nicht sicher, denke aber ja. Panzer ja Beispiele wären der Matilda, Valentin, Sherman Dunkels Braun, Schwarz und blauliches Grau(?) Radfahrzeuge her schwarz wie beim Quad. Muss morgen im Keller das Afrika Buch suchen

MoJo Moin Christian,

in dem Buch armor camouflage and markings von George R. Bradford ist nur über Rolls-Royce und Maron Herrington was drinnen. Die Standartfarben für britische Fahrzeug wird mit Desert Sand, abgetarnt mit Dark Earth, Dull Blue, Standard Green. schick mir per pm Deine mailadresse dann scan ich paar Seiten mit Beispielen ein und schick diese Dir zu.
