Thank you very much for this Frederick. Do you know how this differs from their previous Caunter set?

Hello Paul,

I did not think of their original set and thanks to you, amended the review. A decade ago, Lifecolor offered the similar set Middle East British vehicle camouflage, CS16. (It is no longer on their website.) It featured five of the six colors in this set, with Terracotta instead of UA 206 Dark Olive PFI. Also, those paint color numbers are different than this set. Whether Terracotta returns in the presumed British Tanks Africa & Balkan set 2 remains to be seen.

You can see the difference in an Armorama review made back in 2008. Thanks for asking!
