I'm currently working on the AFV Club kit and was wondering what colour I should paint it. The instructions say Gunze H78, but I think this is more of a US colour.

Thanks for any help.

Hi Nathan,

What era are you modelling the Cent?

Delivery scheme was British Army Bronze Green
Vietnam was Olive green - try Mouse House or White Ensign Models for the Australian Olive paint
Late 1970s was Olive green and 'nipple pink'.

There seems to be quite a few useful things at Mouse House (paint, book, decals) that will really help with my project.

Thanks.

Nathan.

Hi Nathan,

WEM Australian Army Olive Drab is the colour you want. We have plenty of it in stock, along with lots of other WEM paints.
