HTK-CS106 ORANGE LINE – WW2 Italian AFV paint set

description

ORANGE LINE– LAQUER BASED PAINTS

The Royal Italian Army entered the WW2 with two basic painting schemes of AFVs – overall Grey-Green (first in dark, later in light version) and overall Red-Brown (Rosso Ruggine or Terracota) used mostly on Ansaldo vehicles. Both were often covered with shapes of green or red-brown. Vehicles sent to Africa were first repainted to Saharian Khaki in field conditions and later (from March 1941) factory painted in that colour. In 1943 more advanced camo schemes were introduced – disruptive shapes of Dark Grey-Green (or Dark Green for Ansaldo) and Red-Brown over Saharian Khaki base (from May 1943), followed by the new „amoeba” scheme of Red-Brown and Dark Sand-Yellow shapes over Dark Grey-Green (or Dark Green) base (final scheme, used from August 1943).

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

  • HTK-C226 – Grigio-Verde Scuro* – Exact match with Grigio-Verde Scuro – base Italian Army colour in 1930s and again after 1943 (with disruptive shapes in various colours)
