Tempted outside my comfort zone by Gale Force 9's Tanks I find myself with a need to paint some 15mm Shermans.

Understand the Firefly conversion had a different shade to standard Olive Drab – can anyone recommend a suitable Vallejo or similar colour to do the job ?

Many thanks

You will get plenty of suggestions but the best I have found is mixing equal parts Vallejo 888 Olive Grey with 924 Russian Uniform. Vallejo even makes a handy mixing bottle that takes two of the dropper bottles.

Ammo by mig makes an scc15 in their range. Hataka also have one in their range.
