For this project: modelerssocialclub.proboards.com/thread/4847/emhar-mk-iv-female-scale?page=2 Im gonna need as many color references as possible. Im painting my models in most cases with acrylic colors, so is there an authentic green color for these tanks for example [British Version!]? Im pretty new in the "tank area" and aware of the fact that museum models arent given correct colors in some cases - whats even more complicated then
Hi Lucas My understanding is that the exact colour is uncertain, but it's generally believed that 'Lodestar III' at the Army Museum Brussels is still in the original paint. If you google Lodestar III you should get some colour photos, this is what I did for my Mark IV; I then mixed up a khaki brown to match from Vallejo Acrylics. The old paint colour has no doubt changed over the years but its probably the best you can do. Hope that helps!
