Color schemes for models
Posted by acctingman on Tuesday, July 04, 2017 9:21 AM


I'm at my first kit attempt (Stug IV) and I'm wanting to go with Vallejo paints. Is there a site that has what paints to buy for the various painting schemes each vehicle?

Most nations vehicles tend to be painted in a certain in range of colours  within the same time frame. For the StuG IV it would be a dark yellow base with green and red brown on top. Your best bet is to do research into the vehicles of the nations you want to build and you soon learn which colours for wqhich nation in a certain time frame.

I know Vallejo Model Air has the 4 main German armour colours, i can't recall what they are off the toip of my head, but i know their website lists them.

Big part of modelling is the research, lots and lots of it.
