G'day Team,
I have received from a good mate, a pack of the new AK Interactive AUSCAM paint. And to be honest, I'm not that impressed with the colours. More on that in a later post when it has dried.
So, in the mean time, I hope this helps.

Uh-oh, not a good sign of colors. I guess we'll see how it turns out, thanks for the comparison! On another note, do you know what colors would accurately match the camo-scheme?

Well, here it is. I will let the photo's tell the story.
Full disclosure, the paint was brush painted and the photo's taken in natural light on a Samsung phone.

G'day Alan,
To be honest I have not painted Three Tone in about 4 years. I mixed my own enamel colour's then.
Humbrol French Artillery Green was a good match for OD Lusterless. But is now out of production.
Model Master also have a couple of colour's that mix up nicely.
Mouse House also have a set of enamels in Three Tone.
As for acrylic's, don;'t know I'm sorry. However Sam, Ben and a few others will properly chip in their mixes.

Cheers Jason
