For Keith- British Centaur

For Keith- British Centaur

Postby fscunha » 07 Jan 2011

As you probably know, Keith drew the "short stick" and end up with me for this build ;) .
Probably un-aware of my capabilities Keith trusted my with a Cromwell British Centaur. Brave man!!!! :grin:
This was different job for me since it was my first British tank. I had to do some research since I has not even sure what the colour was. At the end (looking at posts here and at ML) I has able to get a "tone" that was close to the US OD but greener. Also I had some British decals that I think were suitable. Also from what I got the stowage on this type of tanks has kept at a minimum.
So here are a couple of pictures of what Keith got:

Looks nice to me, but I am even more ignorant in the subject of British WW2 tanks... :blush:

Sorry Just saw this today...
From what I have found "British AFV colour recommended a 50/50 mix of Vallejo 888 Olive Grey and 924 Russian Uniform"
this mixture is greent than the US colour that I use Vallejo Brown Violet 887, which is.... browner ;)
