Hello, my Grandad was stationed in Egypt during the 1950s for his national service. He drove a Austin K5 truck, I thought it might be nice if I made a model and painted it for his Christmas present. I have sent off for the kit today, but can any one please tell me what colour paint they would have used for the lorry and the canvas roof? If you have the paint code number that would be great.

All the best
Adam

From the two it seems that majority were painted light stone, with the occasional deep bronze green.

HTH,

Paul.
