Hataka have sent us details of their new acrylic paint set dedicated to WW2 Japanese armour subjects.
HTK-AS69 “WW2 Imperial Japanese Army AFV paint set”
The Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) until 1942 (according to most sources) used a colorful camo consisting of IJA Khaki (base colour) with disruptive shapes of IJA Tea Brown (to some extent also used as a base colour), IJA Olive Green and IJA Earth Brown. Many vehicles also wore a yellow disruptive stripe (usually claimed to be a bright yellow, but recently sources suggest that this was more pale IJA Parched Grass - both included in the set), sometimes with black outline. Starting in 1942, the IJA transitioned to a simpler and more standardized set of colors - a new base khaki color (IJA Parched Grass) with disruptive shapes of IJA Grass Green (mostly used on South Pacific) or late IJA Olive Green and IJA Earth Brown.

HTK-AS69 includes standard colours of Japanese Army vehicles from 1937 till 1945. The set contains:
HTK-A240 – IJA Khaki – IJA Khaki (Khaki-iro), base colour in early IJA scheme (1937-42), used on various types of AFVs
HTK-A241 - IJA Tea Brown – IJA Tea Brown (Cha-iro), used for disruptive shapes in early IJA camouflage scheme (1937-42)
