Russian Infantry Uniform Color

Postby Benedick on 29 Sep 2004 08:14

I bought a DragonSoviet Infrantry Tank Riders.

My problem is I can't find a Tamiya Acrylic equivalent for the color of the uniform. Here are the recommended colors from the box:

Aqueous Hobby Color = H27
Mr. Colour = 33
Italeri = 1742

Anyone built a tamiya with Soviet infantry like this one? What's the standard uniform color?

I think it's Khaki, XF49, but Dragon seems to prefer a lighter colour. Desert Yellow should probably be used for bags, slings and such.

Well I used Humbrol 26 for the basic uniform and Humbrol 75 for the helmets and it looked grand.

OK, here we (finally) go...

General uniform details (as in everything I dosen't mention :p ): XF-49
Any "stars" (such as on the headgear, not counting helmets): XF-7
Boots, pistol holsters: X-18 (although I found XF-1 to be better on the boots)
Rain capes: XF-52
Greatcoats: XF-51
Gasmask cases: XF-65
Map cases, Rifle ammo pouches: XF-64
Belts: XF-10
Shapkaushanka (those special "russian" hats): Either XF-51 and XF-49 (with XF-49 on the largest part) or XF-24 and XF-49 (with XF-49 on the smallest part this time).

And finally; The guns: Metla parts should be X-10 (I bet you've already gessed this) and wooden parts should be XF-64.

Sorry if it took some time, I had trouble finding the instructions (and remembering to take them with me)

Vallejo have a very wide selection of colours and will probably have the one you are looking for.
