Which one would be correct for a Sd. Kfz. 222 in the North African Campaign?
Thanks.

They don't seem to sell those separately, or at least they don't show that on their site. They sell a pair of DAK sets but the colors aren't correct in that one is missing RAL 8000, which was the base color in the beginning of the campaign.

If the vehicle served from 1941 to about March 1942, then the base is RAL 8000 (yellow-brown) with RAL 7008 (gray green) as the secondary color (The DAK sets have this as VMA 116). Vehicles serving after March 1942 were painted in RAL 8020 (braun) as the base (VMA 606 according to the DAK sets) and RAL 7027 (gray) as the secondary (VMA 118).

The correct colors are available in the Model Color range if you don't mind thinning.
