Spotlight Review

"Mostly artists renditions"
Lots of great artists renditions with some b&w photos mixed in. They give historical references for each one which is nice. Just wished they referenced their AK colors in addition to the RAL numbers they listed.

We look at German Army vehicle colours for the African campaign, including the European Dark Gray (RAL 7021) in which they arrivedto Libya. This continues through to the initial camouflage colours, Yellow-Brown RAL 8000 with Green-Gray spots RAL 7008 (in 1941), and the new Yellow-Brown RAL 8020 and Sand Gray RAL 7027, used from1942. We also include a selection of Italian vehicles, often forgotten, which fought alongside the Germans against the Allies from 1941 to1943. This is supplemented by the addition of allied vehicles servingwith the Axis troops, with some curious American halftracks on a doublepage spread, with distinctive German markings, from 1943. Over170 profiles cover schemes from the most common camouflage to themost original and unusual vehicles used by the DAK and Regio Esercito,including major artillery pieces used in Africa, highlighting aboveall the powerful 88 mm Flak 18/36/37. Through the 108 pages of thisbook, you will fi nd inspiration for your next African modelling project; projects that you can enhance further with the AK 550 Africa KorpsColors Acrylic Set, and the AK 068 DAK Weathering Set.
