Schémas de Camouflage Japonais de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale, 1937–1945

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