Hi there,

I'm looking for a summary on British paint history on tanks / AFVs.
AFAIK, there was a switch from Bronze Green towards Olive Drab (slightly different from US) during WWII. But Bronze Green became again present during Korea?

Mike Starmer is one of the experts on the subject and has self published several books on the subject, he has posted some information on MAFVA website including how to mix the correct colours using modern model paints.

This site has a few easier to follow tables

Thanks.
However, first site I discovered already and second only refers to up till 1945 as well.
Or is the Deep Bronze green no 24 standard base starting from 1945?

One thing is for sure: understanding the different British colours and history is even worse than the German ones. :)
