AK Interactive - Afrika Korps Colour Set


The Deutsche Afrika Korps vehicles wore 4 different RAL colours: 8000 and 7008 before March 1942; 8020 and 7008 after March 1942. Additionally the vehicles were painted with a Panzer Grey 7021 paint base which was often exposed when the paint camo was chipped and worn. There is also a discussion about the colour of the Tiger I deployed in Tunisia, because some sources identified them in Olive Drab. However, recent research identifies the paint as RAL 8020 but in a more greenish shade than usual.

This set includes 6 colours which can be applied directly without having to make complex paint mixtures or do research about the colours used by DAK. These colours were slightly modified in order to compensate for the scale effect. 

Includes: AK700 RAL 8020 Gelbbraun, AK701 RAL 7027 GrauAK702 RAL 8000 Gelbbraun, AK703 RAL 7008 Graugrün (or Khakibraun), AK704 RAL 7021 Dunkelgrau, AK705 RAL 7008 Graugrün Opt. 2
