Abrams M1A2 Engine colour

Recommended Posts

I am currently building the Ryefield Models M1A2 Sep Abrams TuskII with full interior. What colour is the best to use for the gas turbine engine. Ryefield give a 50% mix of matt black and polished steel, but seems way too dark for an engine colour. Thanks

Looking at pictures in my WWP book on the Abrams in Detail book on of which there are several pages on the engine which seems to show the colour of the engine in a light metallic shade. I would use a grey instead of the black mentioned in the instructions.

Being a gas turbine, the engine would be a range of metallic colours rather than a uniform painted colour like a diesel engine block.


Here's one.
