Anybody know any other sites that supply late Brit and Dunkelgelb spraypaint? Ordered off of BF but they're out of stock as is every other place that sells BF paint on the internets.

Try commercial department store paints.
In the States, I use Krylon Camoflage Khaki for Dunkelgelb first coat, and then drybrush to attain the "correct" color.
Just remember that EVERY paint fades in the sun and weather.
They will also be cheaper and nore reliable and less prone to do the Bad Things that Hobby Paints are prone to. Like spitting grit, leaking, etc.

I suspect Tamiya may make them, since they produce a lot of paints to go with their historical models.

Most hobby shops should stock their range.

Thanks for the swift responses. You're right Mako, Tamiya do one thats perfect for my Brit armour and I can get it from creative models.
Should have checked there first really but It just didnt occur.

Thanks chaps.

Olive Drab for Americans can be had in the camouflage paint line as well. There is a great green for Russian and Italian mainland troops too. The Khaki makes a great basecoat for other desert armies too. You final wash or dip will determine final color appearances.

Don't overlook the Rustoleum brand either. They have some similar paints. Craft stores have additional colors in the medium sized can range too (smaller than Citadel but larger than Testor's size cans)

Hey there:

I did an article on my blog concerning the Rust-Oleum Camouflage Deep Forest Green and Army green I use to paint my new armor models.

I also use the sand to paint some of my German tanks (dont have that on the blog yet though). I go through a process to paint my armor…

You can have a look here:


Maybe it can give you some ideas.
