Do the military experts have any recommendations as to which paint (manufacturer/number) is the best representation of WW1 British Army uniform khaki?  I know that the shades varied over the passage of the war and depending upon which mill had made the cloth but as a general rule, what is thought of as the closest match?  Humbrol 26 looks too light to me.

Many thanks

Wookie!  For your edification ...

I know ...  :shock:  :idea:  :shock:

I asked Hans the very question you asked and he suggested Vallejo Model Color 70921 English Uniform.  I certainly wasn't going to argue!  That's what Hans uses for WWI British uniforms.

I have got some, but haven't used it yet, but I'm sure it will be right!  I can't remember where I got mine from now - ebay or Amazon or something, but you can get it.  Otherwise there may be a Revell or Humbrol colour that is close.

Hope this helps! :thumb:

Thanks Alan.  Having looked at your question to Hans and his reply, I now see why my search questions didn't come up with anything since I was being far more specific!
