Good day all!

I'm just jumping into Revells 1:76 FAMO and was wondering on their colour call outs. I would like to be somewhere in the ball park and their 'mix' doesnt sound right. They are asking for 50% Matt 88 Ochre and 50% Greyish green, which sounds a bit khaki, Olive Drab something! So can any relate this to a proper all in one colour that I can buy. Ideally, I would be looking at an acrylic such as Vallejo Air, Model Master Acryl, Mig Ammo or AK. TIA!

Help me ASM you are my only hope!

My go to for grey German armour in anything up to 1/48 scale is Vallejo 70.867 Dark Bluegrey. Anything darker than that loses all the detail. They do a German Grey too (70.995) but that is really dark and best left for bigger scales where you can still see things post paint.

The light grey wash (69.515) from the Vallejo Mecha range is great over the top of it for instant shading and weathering. 

Tamiya XF-63 will do the same job.

Thats odd Bob cos Revell have a Dark Yellow in their range and most of the Famo's were Dark Yellow and some were Panzer Grey, but the mix of the Dark Yellow varied so much you could prob write a whole book on the matter :)

XF-60 is your friend there. There is a newer version, but I've still got a bottle and a half of 60 so I've not tried it yet.

Thats the type of result I like! I think I will go for the dark yellow option and just make it up from there. It should be fine in a small scale ..... not that I'm a perfectionist with AFV but ballpark is preferred!
