HTK-CS21 Early WW2 French Army paint set

description

ORANGE LINE – LACQUER BASED PAINTS

Standard colours of French vehicles from 1918 till 1940

After WW1 majority of French Army vehicles wore overall Olive Green coat. The return to colourful camouflage was induced by instruction of March 1937 listing 16 colours, three („sky”, „ground” and „shadow” colour) to be used on each vehicle (quite loosely followed by AFV producers). In late 1938 a new instruction was issued introducing a scheme of Grey-Green and Earth Shadow (exact shades differed as the paints were mixed in combat units and due to low pigments quality).

Contains the following colours (lacquer based paints, optimised for use with airbrush):

  • HTK-C094 – Vert Olive – Standard colour of army vehicles from 1918 till early 1930s (except for Renault FTs), also base in some 1930s camo schemes
