    Well I just checked how the photos came out and the color does not show correct. The real color is like a field green/gray. similar to the color of the German helmets. It almost matches color of early M38 FJ helmet I have. Ray

    thanks Ray! I will try with RAL 6006 or otherwise I'll play around with Humbrol colours...

    I have some parts of them, if you wish, I will send you one part as color example in december. But generally it's the same as a stick grenades and the ammo boxes, but really I found that they are all a bit different by color
