IMVHO all this colour matched stuff seems a bit like snake oil to me, the real effect of colour shift in scales isn’t accounted for so even if the colour is ‘right’ in 1/35 it therefore has to be ‘wrong’ in 1/48 & 1/72 surely? We buy a colour matched paint, then add modulation, filters, washes and pigments
Jeff, sometimes I mix my own OD using yellow and black, with a dab of red to "burn" it a bit. You can get the color as you want. Start with yellow and add black 'till you get the correct tone. After that, add the red.
First off Boys, I've got to say thank you all for the help. With all the info given I have come up with what I think will work. So here we go.
What I'm going for is 1A3-4 in the 80's So single colour,Dark greenish OD kinda looikin'. Meng calls out Vallejo 71.016. Which they call US Dark Green. Go to my supplier, type in 71.016 and it's called USAF Olive Drab. (that's why I asked about OD.) Using the chart provided by Nito( thank you again)I found that 71.016 crosses to XF-65,Field Grey which we all know is not really grey/gray but green.
So the winner is..........................Tamiya XF-65. Field Gray.
Thanks again, Gents. Couldn't have done it with out you.
If you can keep your Head while all around you are losing theirs.... Maybe you've underestimated the situation.
Might be a bit late here Jeff but if you are painting the leopard in the single colour scheme then I would recommend tamiya XF51 khaki drab. It's a very good match for the particular German Bundeswehr colour. I used it on my belgian leopard last year.
