RCAF and RAF Willys MB
Posted by Armyguy on Sunday, December 24, 2017 2:02 PM

 Echelon has a decail sheet for RCAF and RAF Willys Jeep. The blue that RCAF and RAF  painted their jeeps would it be the same blue that the USAF paint their's

 I'm 90% sure its the same but would like to get some other opinions.

From what i gather, RAF jeeps were not blue. The RAF adopted army colours early in the war. I would imagine Jeeps were painted OD at the factory and the USAF would have re painted them. I think it should either be the army colours or would be left in US OD.

 Thanks for your input Bish

 Echelon did not have any time frame on their site as to when these markings were used. I'm guessing they are post war, I'll find out when the decals get here if they have any more info then what their web site shows.

 Thanks again Merry Christmas
