Apache color
Posted by markuz226 on Wednesday, June 4, 2003 5:32 PM
What is the dark greenish-olive drabish color used on AH-64 choppers? Was this also the color of the prototypes? Thank you!

Try Model Master "U.S. Army Helo Drab"

Mark Y,
I concur with Chris ... current versions of the Apache are in Helo Drab ... and I use Model Master in this color. I'm almost positive the prototypes of the Apache would have been in Olive Drab. The development of the Black Hawk and Apache were a lot longer ago than most people realize and the Army had not started using the current paint, which is designed to reduce IR and radar signatures, at that time.
