Light Green № 5

Light Green № 5

»Light Green № 5«, the British Army disruptive colour of the two-colour camouflage scheme for light backgrounds introduced in June 1939. The disrupter was painted in diagonal horizontal lines over the »Khaki Green № 3« standard basic camouflage paint. Revell 36.361 »Olive Green RAL 6003« is a good match for »Light Green № 5«, but it needs to be tinted to account for aerial perspective. Revell 36.361 tinted with 10 % white is the equivalent of Humbrol 86 »Light Olive«.
