    I think it's been resprayed at some point, as the ones i've seen are either khaki or a sand tan colour. Better wait for other answers though.

    Thanks Ned, I'm a lot better with the German cans...not really familiar with the assorted British paint-jobs.

    Yeah....Just noticed the cat casting a critical eye over the paint dribbles below the BMB stamp....

    THX Guys - that paint did look fishy to me - however, this one is already on its way, straight from Germany...
