Esquema de Camuflaje Americano de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, 1941–1945

US Army Vehicle Camouflage Patterns

It is important to remember, that the table lists the closest model color matches for a particular standard color applied to an actual vehicle, not a model of the same. In order to paint a 1:72 scale model of a particular vehicle, the scale color effect needs to be taken into account. As a rule, matching model colors should be mixed with 10-30% white in order to arrive at the scaled down vehicle base color. Approximately 40-50% white is recommended for drybrushing the highlights. For a detailed painting guide, please refer to Weathering Vehicles, by Jim Gordon.
