Hi All

There's apparently a good book on Finnish post war armour by Apali(?) can anybody give me more information and availability please?

On a related matter I'm after paint recommendations for the two tone green finish on Charioteers. I've found an old thread but it has a dead link.

TIA

Suomalaiset Panssarivaunut 1918-1997
The Finnish Armored Vehicles 1918-1997
By Esa Muikku and Jukka Purhonen

I managed to buy the last one (?) at the shop of the Parola tank museum for a friend who was after it.

There are two editions of this book I believe (I have the first one from the late 1990s), the last one was slightly revised.

Cheers,

Christophe

Actually there has never been a two green camo on Finnish Charioteers except on one "restored" museum piece
