This is an old thread, so who knows if anyone will see this? does anyone know the conversions for the paints to paint the scammel but to Citadel or Vallejo paints? also I found this kit to be quite tricky to make, the instructions are quite good, but it was still tricky and fiddly.

I'm guessing that you want to paint this in Mickey mouse pattern, Europe 1944. The base colour, No.15 B.S.987C-1942 Khaki Drab is VMC 93 70887 Brown Violet or VMA 71043 Olive Drab with the black disruptive colour VMC 169 70950 Black or VMA 71057 Black, HTH :wink:

SCC.15 is formally named Olive Drab not 'khaki drab'. Vallejo paints are a mix for this, equal parts 70888 & 70924. This mix has been fomulated against the BS.987C book. Do not use dead black as SCC.14 is actually a blue-black and appears as a slight greyish tinge when compared to plain black samples. I don't have a Vallejo match for that but Tamiya XF-69 Nato black is an exact match. Be aware too that Scammell had their own style of application to this scheme which is not the usual type of 'Mickey Mouse' rounded patches, but one of a more ragged appearance. If possible look in Vanderveen p.173 or any picture of the later Scammells. The scheme conforms to MTP.46/4A instruction of November 1941. I suggest that you Google Scammell for pictures.

Great footage of Scammell heavy breakdown tractors here:

The tractor that does the winching has 'Mickey Mouse' camouflage. It is an amazing piece of winching but that's not relevant to this thread :wink:
Cheers

The youtube clip is a very chopped edited sequence from an army training film of nearly an hour long which I have. Notice that in the opening sequence the tractor has horizontal/diagonal disruptive bands, it appears later too. This is a typical Scammell factory application of MTP.20 of 1939-40. The sequence with the Churchill tank has MTP 46/4a style painting. i.e. 'Mickey Mouse' but of unit applied style. The Scammell works application is a more ragged style that is well shown in the Vanderveen vehicle books. Note too that the RAC flash on the Churchill was rectangular rather than the regulation 18 inches square.
