Acrylic 3G Paint: AFV Series

British Desert Colours

This Acrylic 3G Paint Set features the six basic camouflage colors used for painting vehicles of British and Commonwealth forces deployed in North Africa and the Mediterranean from mid-1940 to the spring of 1943. Silver Grey No.28, Slate No.34 and Light Stone No.61 or Portland Stone No.64 were used for the so-called Caunter Scheme employed from July 1940 until October 1941, when a single overall color of Light Stone No.61 (sometimes replaced with Portland Stone No.64) was introduced. In December 1941, application of camouflage patterns in a chosen color was allowed. In October 1942, Desert Pink ZI was introduced as the new basic color, with Dark Olive Green PFI to be used for patterning. These last colours would remain the official standard until April 1943.

The 3rd Gen Acrylic AFV line contains the colors most useful for painting military vehicles from all eras with references to the specific hues and tones used by different militaries in different periods (FS, RAL, etc.).

The Acrylic 3G line is the latest generation of colors using a new technologically superior formula that allows for flawless paint coverage with either paint brushes or airbrushes, all while avoiding the traditional clogs when diluted.

Acrylic 3G Paints are non-toxic, contain very high pigmentation, providing coverage and resistance for model kits, miniatures and modeling in general.

The new cap allows you to quickly identify the color and the product comes in handy 17ml bottles that help prevent the paint from evaporating and drying out between uses.
