I'm working on the Matilda Scorpion and in photographs the drum is a darker color then the tank itself. I'm trying to guestamate what color. I was thinking it might have been left in primer red ?

James it was painted the same colour as the rest of the tank. What you are seeing is probably excessive wear or dirt.
