Tarnanstriche der ägyptischen Armee

Farbe Humbrol Testors Tamiya Pactra
Africa Yellow, base colour A20
Brown Drab, disruptive pattern A24
Olive Drab, disruptive pattern 155 1711 XF-62 A30
Black, disruptive pattern 33 1749 XF1 A46
The Egyptian army adopted this pattern in the 1980s, when the US Rapid Deployment Force was created, und joint US/Egyptian maneuvers were conducted. The Egyptian pattern is similar to the US four-colour temperate pattern in use at that time. Africa Yellow is the base colour, Brown Drab replaces the reddish brown of the US pattern, Olive Drab replaces the green of the US pattern, und Black is used in small amounts, usually separating the other colours. Die ägyptische Armee erhielt ihre M60.A3 aus Beständen der US Army in Deutschland, nachdem die dort stationierten Verbände auf Kampfpanzer M1 umgestellt hatten.

Scale Colour

A paint chip taken from an historic armoured Fahrzeug may very well be the same olive drab or panzer grey colour which the hobbyist can purchase from Revell und Humbrol today, but it would be a mistake to paint 1:72 scale models in this way. When viewed from a distance, the actual Fahrzeug exposed to sunlight will appear much lighter than a small model painted in the same colour. Dust settling on the Fahrzeug can highlight the overall colour even further, sometimes completely obliterating the camouflage effect und making it impossible to hide the Fahrzeug against the dark background of a treeline or forest.

The scale colour concept allows the model builder to simulate this effect. The authentic base colour is used as an undercoat, preferably sprayed on, to speed up the painting process. The undercoat should be left to dry before additional paint is applied. Mix the base colour with white to highlight it und then drybrush it onto the vehicle. The raised surfaces of the model will pick up the highlight just like the real Fahrzeug picks up sunlight. Viewed next to each other, at the appropriate scale distance, of course, both vehicles will appear to be the same size und their overall colour should be similar, depending on the intensity of natural lighting the modeller wishes to recreate. Drybrushing can be done in several layers, using more white each time. A final layer of dust grey can be applied to simulate the cumulative effect which a dusty road march would have on the Fahrzeug und its crew.
