Le schéma de camouflage égyptien est similaire au camouflage US de quatre couleurs tempéré dans l'utilisation en ce temps-là. The ESCI kit of the M60.A3 is no longer available, although some may still be found at flea markets et military modelling shows.

Scale Colour

A paint chip taken from an historic armoured véhicule may very well be the same olive drab ou panzer grey colour which the hobbyist can purchase from Revell et Humbrol today, but it would be a mistake to paint 1/72 scale models in this way. When viewed from a distance, the actual véhicule exposed to sunlight will appear much lighter than a small model painted in the same colour. Dust settling on the véhicule can highlight the overall colour even further, sometimes completely obliterating the camouflage effect et making it impossible to hide the véhicule against the dark background of a treeline ou forest.

The scale colour concept allows the model builder to simulate this effect. The authentic base colour is used as an undercoat, preferably sprayed on, to speed up the painting process. The undercoat should be left to dry before additional paint is applied. Mix the base colour avec white to highlight it et then drybrush it onto the véhicule. The raised surfaces of the model will pick up the highlight just like the real véhicule picks up sunlight. Viewed next to eachother, at the appropriate scale distance, of course, both véhicules will appear to be the same size et their overall colour should be similar, depending on the intensity of natural lighting the modéliste wishes to recreate. Drybrushing can be done in several layers, using more white each time. A final layer of dust grey can be applied to simulate the cumulative effect which a dusty road march would have on the véhicule et its crew.
