Hi guys
I'm starting my first ever 6mm project with the Arab-Israeli wars.

Just looking for recommendations for Vallejo colours to use for painting Israeli and Egyptian armour?

According to FOW folks:

Israeli armor – 886 green grey
UAR armor – 847 dark sand

It does depend on which time frame you are considering though.

Thanks. Mainly looking at the Yom Kipper war.

Those colors are way off for the Israeli's.

AK Interactive makes an Israeli AFV set with AK 792 being the Israeli sand grey used at that time.

Kiefer, I disagree. I was at the IDF Armor Museum in 2019 and the colors seemed quite close.
