Posted: Sun Nov 23, 2014 3:55 am
I have updated my Vallejo WWII naval and air force camouflage color tables again.
New for this version:
- RAF camouflage colors - includes FAA and Coastal Command colors
Revised in this version
- Improved the color matches for a couple of key USN colors: 5-H, 5-N, 5-O, Deck Blue 20B and Revised Deck Blue 20B.
(updated January 2017)
Next task will be a complete color list for the IJNAF and IJAAF. Then Italy after that.

It has taken me over a year, but I finally finished the colors for the IJNAF and IJAAF. I also added early war colors from the 1940 USAAF specifications. Now I just have the late war USAAF and the Regia Aeronautica remaining to be done. I also tweaked a few of the Kreigsmarine Norway colors and my guesses for French and Soviet ship colors.

I have updated my Vallejo WWII naval and air force paint equivalency tables once again. I have finally added the Italian Air Force colors. "Officially" this finally completes this project that I started about 9 years ago. Unofficially, I am always making little tweaks when I get new information. Plus I need to reorganize the US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps air color section. It is a bit of a mess because I started with the USN/Marine Corps air colors (naturally) and then added Army Air Corps colors much later. The two services settled on a common set of colors in 1943 and that is not clear from the way I did the tables. Plus there are some Air Corps late war colors missing because of the organization. Anyway, still a project for another day!
Updates in the January 2017 document:
1. I have finally added the Italian Air Force colors - Go Regia Aeronautica!
2. Added color mix for Royal Navy color B55
3. Revised some of the USN 1944/45 neutral gray mixes
4. Added Netherlands East Indies green camouflage colors
5. Added Tashkent's "powder blue" color in Soviet navy section
