155mm Howitzer projectile


#1

I am attempting to find what the correct colour scheme should be for this Projectile, a 155mm Howitzer.

The other is a 76mm , I believe from a Saladin armoured car. This too I would like to know what colour it should be.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the messy workshop

Morton,

Are both items British?

Your workshop looks normal to me:-)

The origin is sketchy. The 155mm was on Ebay, a lady had it as a garden ornament & was moving house.
The 76mm I believe is from a Saladin armoured car, which is of British origin but we have them here in Australia.

Morton45,
It depends on what you are trying to represent, if you are trying to reproduce a HE style projectile, the base colour will be OD (Olive Drab) with yellow stencilling.
If the 155mm proj is a smoke or Illum it will be a different base colour & different stencilling.
BTW the PRFs & ARMDC cart. look familiar!
Yes very untidy workshop! LOL. Just like the rest of us.
Regards Ozzi.

HaHa, very good info, Yes the PRFs & 76mm case were from a top fella that I know.
In fact I’ll give him a call, maybe he can steer me right with colours.
