Colors

Post by missyd »

Is there a list of the colors used by the R.E. in WWII?

I'd like to buy the right colors for my Mortar 81/35 and some equipment like radios and wooden boxes ...

Maybe somebody has even the RAL Code for the colors?

Tanks a lot! :wink:

Daniela,

The only colour list i am aware of is the Regia Aeronautica colours. When it comes to the Regio Esercito, i don't think a truly constructive list has ever been done. However, if the Mortar you have bought is one of the portugese ones, the actuall colour (A kind of dark olive green) is about right.

As for radio's and so on, then the grey green colour for used for Tamyia paints is close. Probably needs a little dark grey added to the mix, as the Italian colour was more grey than green.

Keep us posted if you find anything out tho!
