All their Sealowe stuff seems to be resin or metal

When I was chatting about forthcoming plastics with the guy at the desk he did not mention anything else due soon.

I see that Warlord's plastic Tiger 2 made an appearance at Salute (photo from Beasts of War site).  They also had plastic British paratroops and (in prototype form) Waffen SS.  No sign of any other plastic vehicles.

Pinky - is it Khaki Green No.3 you're after? It's generally a bit of of bugger to find a single paint analogue for it, but if you're happy with Vallejo Mike Starmer produced the recipe for a mix that's regarded as being pretty good (see swatch below - the small patch of Brown Violet is there to show it's innaccuracy - Battlefront recommend BV & it's not even close). Hope it's helpful...

Thanks very much - that's very helpful.  I was hoping to avoid mixing paint.  I did that to get the right shade of so-called Panzer grey, but I couldn't get it consistent so I painted over it with a Vallejo grey.  I might use the Brown Violet on the basis that it will have a whitewash camo over it.

The Starmer mix is browner than VMC Russian Uniform, but it is representing No.3 which was phased out (on tanks at any rate) by '41 (the MAFVA site is useful -
Code: [Select]
http://www.mafva.net/other%20pages/starmer%20camo.htm but tends to reference enamel paints like Humbrol/Revell). The PSC tank spray (which I also like) lies somewhere between Bronze Green (but closer to) British OD (excitingly called SCC15) - again, I dont think there's a pot of this out there, it's another mix it yourself - 50:50 VMC Olive Grey & Russian Uniform.

How does that compare to Vallejo Russian Uniform Green? have a look at the Cromwell cowl to see how it compares to PSC British Tank spray.

I like this colour.  I am planning to try it out soon.  Do you know what colour would be best to use for the earlier, khaki colour applied to British tanks?  I need to paint a Lend-Lease Churchill.

Very quiet on the World War Two modelling front. I have added a couple of crates to my Katyusha but I forgot to get any Russian tank paint at Salute.

I include this here as it has a Rubicon bucket and flimsy can as part of the stowage.



Still deciding on the markings (it is intended to be a tank brought out of storage and pressed into British service after the fall of France).

I do need to paint the inside of the bucket, as we!L as final tidying and weathering.
