British Army 1969; Uniform colours: What are people using?

Recommended Posts

Finally settled on my next build, having obtained some replacement wheels for my JB Saladins; a brace of these, plus two Ferret Mk. 2 to form an armoured car troop, in peacetime perhaps about to embark on a training run, but not in full Combat Order.


It seems I can get away with crews wearing:

Pixie Suits

AFV Crew Overalls

Shirts and Trousers

and will likely go for the latter two.


Does anyone have a particular colour/brand preference for painting these uniforms in 1:76?  I can easily find Humbrol (no surprises there) and Revell Enamels, Acrylics by GW, Vallejo, Revell and Tamiya, so any of these would be first choice.  I don't mind using a selection of different manufacturers' products.

Anyone have an opinion on who does the best Flesh colour?


My thanks, esteemed comrades, as always.

If I might be so bold as to give myself a little bump, and report that the hull interiors (such as they are, not that anyone will see past the crew) of the Ferrets have been primed.
