To round-up the Real Colors presentation to the modelling community, we thought about preparing a special book.

A limited edition and accurately printed book devoted to the original colours of WWII, authored by experts Jürgen Kiroff, Przemyslaw Skulski, Mike Starmer & Steven Zaloga.

A real journey through the research of official, private and industry archives about the development and use of colours on German, Russian USA and British AFVs. 200 pages full of text, colour photographs, camouflage schemes, profiles, general camouflage rules, etc. A must book for modellers who like to know more about the real thing and THE definitive guide for WWII AFV Colors.

Extremely Important:-

The chips that appear in the book, even though they are not painted with paint (which would increase the complexity of the publishing process and make the book prohibitively expensive) are highly controlled and calibrated in the most precise way, under the current parameters of printing and technology, to provide the modeller with the most accurate color chips available. The tolerance of colours in the book is +/- 4%.
