Skunk Models 1/48 R-11 US/NATO Fuel Truck

Recommended Posts


This is my first post, I have been viewing this forum for a few years and have found the information very helpful.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice, I am looking to start the Skunkworks R11 fuel truck, the kit looks great, the only issue I have is the painting instructions, they state dark green. I have been through my paint collection and cannot decide what shade to go for, I have also done some internet searches for US Airforce ground equipment and colours, so far I have found the following paints.

FS34086 XF62, Humbrol 66.

FS34052 XF13, Humbrol 116

Any suggestion would be gratefully received.

Hello Haydn


Thanks for the info, I have manage to pick up some Xtracolor while I was on holiday,  hoping to make a start this side of Christmas,

I love this truck and I think Skunk Models for releasing it. I have done a Google search and the only schemes I can find are the boring olive drab ones. I did find some desert tank ones and even a mix with the cab olive drab and the tank in desert tan. The Taiwanese army also uses these trucks but they are green too.


Personally I think these schemes are pretty blah so I am going to do mine in NATO tri camo. The only other think that bugs me about the kit are the tires with the lack of thread. I am even thinking of somehow doing a 3D drawing and get it done by 3D printing it. Have not started that as yet though.
