During World War II some armies used improvised paints to camouflage vehicles on some fronts, as in North Africa and the Eastern Front. These colors were made by mixing local earth with a binder such as oil, gasoline and other products for application on vehicles.These paints tended to wear rapidly due to its poor quality and gave the car a very characteristic appearance. Rain or use of the vehicle was eroding and wearing this paint progressively. That color is represented with this product and produces exactly the same effects as the real color and may gradually wear it with a brush and water to represent the effects of vehicles of that era. Use this color to camouflage the German Army in Africa (DAK) or German "Early" vehicles in central Europe or Russian. This product is acrylic and is formulated for maximum performance both with brush or airbrush. Water soluble, odorless and non-toxic. Shake well before each use. Each jar includes a stainless steel agitator to facilitate mixture. We recommend MIG -2000 Acrylic Thinner for a correct thinning.
