British tanks and most other vehicles in 1944 were painted in an overall scheme of a colour designated SCC15. Most people have difficulty finding the “right” colour for, say, the ubiquitous German Dunkelgelb
or US Olive Drab. Not me. SCC15 is my nemesis.
Battlefront, fount of wisdom they are, have long recommended straight 924 Russian Uniform as the correct colour. I always though it too light and mixed dozens of shade searching for something that looked better.
In a discussion of the Flames of War forum Mike Starmer, something of an expert on British paint colours and camouflage schemes of the Second World War, recommended a 50/50 mix of VMC 888 Olive Grey and 924 Russian Uniform. This produces quite an attractive darker green.
For 15mm I used the mix 50/50 Olive Grey/Russian Uniform. This was applied over a shadow of Olive Grey and black and block-painted Olive Grey. Straight Russian Uniform was used for the highlights, mostly confined to raised details and prominent edges (However, I now much prefer the Vallejo Panzer Aces colour "327 Italian Tankcrew", avoiding the dull Russian Uniform altogether). The Wasps below were the “test piece”.
I'm pretty satisfied with the results and have commenced painting my Cromwell Armoured Squadron using the same colours. They received 50th Div decals (from Doms
) because I had no others at the time, even though don't recall 50th Div using Wasps.
