BRITISH MILITARY VEHICLE
PAINTING AND LETTERING

There has always been controversy regarding the paint colors and camouflage schemes used when painting a restored military vehicle. In hopes of clearing up some of the confusion I have uploaded some files that may solve the mysteries of "the right color" and/or the lettering on our vehicles.

The Adobe files available here are organized by the year the standard was printed/published.

NOTE: THE WEBMASTER TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACCURACY OF THESE PUBLICATIONS, NOR THE SELECTION OF PAINT COLOR(S) USED FOR YOUR RESTORATION. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN THERE !
