Hi all -

I'd rather use acrylics than enamel, so does anyone know what the Vallejo (or similar brand) equivalent is to Humbrol 237 Matt Desert Tan?

In a recent post someone recommended Vallejo 61 Light Stone for these vehicles

I generally use 847 Dark Sand, but you can't really go wrong with any similar colour, sometimes I use 819 Iraqi sand for a bit of variety. Here's a picture of me between a Jackal (not Jaguar, that was a jet) and Panther.

it was getting dark when the photo was taken, but you get the idea that due to dust, dirt, fading light etc just about any sandy colour will do.

Foxweasel – you're quite right. Supacat, Sepcat…

Officially the British Army's desert yellow is still Light Stone 61. However having said that I know of at least one vehicle in the First Gulf War (a 432) that was painted with Magnolia household emulsion, as that's all that the crew could get hold of!
