Korean war US uniform colour

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I have a 1/35 Korean war marine figure to paint. Does anyone know what colour his parka and trousers should be? I mainly use Tamiya, Revell or Humbrol paints but I can also get hold of Vallejo.

Regards

Mick

I don't really know myself but I believe the WWII period uniform was Sage Green. Would USMC uniform colours have changed by 1950?

I've done a Korean War diorama and I painted my Americans with humbrol colours.

 

Helmets-117

Jackets and trousers-86

Webbing-102

Boots-186

 

Paraks I would probably paint in 155 or 102.

 

Hope this helps!
