Gary I think it's the one that comes with the Bronco 25 pounder cannon from a while back.
Very detailed and much better than the Testers kit.

Thanks guys

I agree with Gary, Tony. It looks suspiciously correct to me though I am no expert at all. What colour did you use? Did you mix it yourself?

I have to confess Wally I mixed it myself trying to match the color print in the instructions.
I mixed Tamiya Desert Yellow, Buff and a tad of white. No ratio just eye balled it.

A filter and wash will darken it a little and I don't think it should be any darker.
I might over spray a coat of a lighter shade first.

The Bishop can be lighter or darker than the limber so i'm using the limber to do my paint testing on.

Thanks for the response guys

Hi Tony,
I think you've got the colour pretty much dead on. I'd be happy with that as a base!

Cheers

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
