PSC Tank Sprays (and decals)
« on: Today at 01:33:04 PM »
Just starting to dabble in 20mm/ 1/72 and I have a load of PSC vehicles to paint up. I have their tank sprays as I didn't really want to get an airbrush and tackle that learning curve.

I was wondering if anyone knew what the matching colours were for the Tank Sprays so I could highlight.

https://www.wargaming3d.com suggested the following matches:

Dunkelgelb as VJ middlestone 882
German grey as Revell grey
Russian as VJ Russian Green 894
British as VJ Russian Uniform 924
US as VJ violet brown/olive drab 887

Can anyone here comment on the above suggestions as some comments were not fully agreeing.

Also wrt to decals I know PSC do quite a few (not a lot of Allied though), what are people's (UK based) go to source for these ? (NWE theatre)

Thanks all

You might want to try a bit of colour modulation if you are only going to spray from the can thus giving you some variation in the colour ? Just prime in black(spray can) and highlight raised/worn areas in white(spray can). You can use bits of cardboard to blank out bits you dont want sprayed. Finally go over with your spray can colour eg.  924 Russian green.

 Lots of videos on youtube about colour modulation.

I think Plastic Soldier Company has just got in a large new lot of decals. Lots of them seemed to be out of stock a few months back. I would probably buy directly if you are in the UK.

I can't help you on the spray colours, except to say that I found the PSC Dunkelgelb can I had to be surprisingly green. It may have just been the batch I bought from.
