Howdy all!

Does anyone know how the Belgians painted the FT17's they had? I can find B&W images which dont really help me much..

Thanks in advance

I believe they were painted olive green.

theres a few that seem to have been done in the light blue / grey like their artillery was in 1914 – im not sure if its accurate…

Ive seen a few in that olive green, its certainly a more safe choice i think

I went for the brighter style of Belgian camo on mine. It might not be realistic but it does the job and looks entertaining on the table.

Mine is a Peter Pig 15mm model. Link here to the photo.
