    hi Guys
    need a hand with the colours for my ICM LaGG 3
    the instructions say only field green and black but on doing a bit of looking i think there might be two different greens ?

    also can any one point me in the direction of what Vallejo colours to use or even Humbrol or similar so i can convert them into Vallejo colours ?

    heres the subject i'm doing thanks in advance

    Hi mate, there's some Humbrol colours shown in the Pe2 night fighter thread by Night Fighter Nut which may be the ones you're looking for?

    Hmmm !
    seems Vallejo dont do medium green in model colour range just in the airbrush model air range !!!

    i think i might be able to use a similar shade i already have its called US dark green but looks pretty close, i'll try it out on a spare 1/72 Beaufighter i use just for that purpose

    I'm not sure if it is the best colour as the equivalent. I would say it should be the U.S.A. Uniform no.84 or Olive Green no.82 rather. These seem to be a good basis for mixing if needed. But it is a good idea to check the U.S. Dark Green no.95.
    Please will do that.


    And THX Andy... :)

    of vallejo modelcolor I can give to menso 6 ways to paint them if you are interested, I use them a lot, before most of my paintings were vallejo.
    what use is the most ecological of W5 crystals cleans you ever find it in the "supermarket" lidl, is economical and gives very good results.
    ue if I advise you to paint with waving vallejo always very, very well, I award a magnetic stirrer because my arms ached often repeated movement, godsend, really.
    the important question, Rochie, me modelcolor for Russian aircraft I have the green intermediate 70891, and 70850 medium olive.
    which gives wojtek of modelair in modelcolor would be: 70895 gunship green, and the flat green park 70969
