Anyone have any color references for the USAAF (late-war) OD Green? I've come across a lot of different sources and none of them are even remotely similar.

THIS help at all? Having said that I sdon't think that any primer is in there but there's this..

Salmon

"Salmon was a pale pink-coloured chromate primer used by Vought in production of the F4U Corsair. It was produced by mixing Indian Red pigment with raw Zinc Chromate primer.
The actual tone was reddish orange."

As Salmon was a mixed primer, claiming an exact colour shade for it would be misleading. However, the FS colour match could be somewhere between FS 32276 and 32356.

Those are nice colour guides, especially for amongst other reasons not being in a proprietary format :salute:

 

Thanks for posting them mate. Would you consider also posting in here too?

I'm sure they would be much appreciated.

I'm preparing a "fake" mission for the JG 1 and a special one dedicated to the Fw-190 A6 from Sturmstaffel 1& Bf-109 G6  from JG 3 (Topcover). Since there are no heavy bomber the A20 suits anyway perfect. Would someone help me out and paint a group (12 different skins) for the area 1943 (RAF bombers) and 1944 (USAAAF bombers) which fit for the A20 eben if there are B25 or Marauders involved?  

What's the deal? Y'got any ref piccies or anything? Just a bit of a general heads-up to get me on the road? Save me trawling?

I've already posted the colour references but I just put up the swatches as well, they're for Photoshop and are pretty much the same as the references, you just doubleclick them and they'll install straight into your workspace.

@Raptorattacker,

 

Here's a timeline from the History of War Pages:

History of War about A20

 

QUOTE:

The A-20 made a brief combat debut in Europe in the summer of 1942. On 29 June 1942 one RAF Boston was flown by a crew from the 15th Bomb Squadron during a raid on a railway marshalling yard in France. The 15th flew the first mission in its own right on 4 July 1942, when six aircraft attacked German airfields in Holland. Worryingly two aircraft were lost to ground fire, but only two more missions were flow before the squadron moved to North Africa to join the 12th Air Force.

The A-20 did not reappear in Britain until early in 1944, when the 409th, 410th and 416th Bombardment Groups joined the 9th Air Force in preparation for the invasion of Europe. Tactics had changed since 1942, and these groups now operated a mix of solid nosed B-20Gs and B-20Hs, led by the clear nosed A-20Js and A-20Ks, in medium level attacks. They concentrated on invasion targets – coastal positions, airfields and German communications – and played an important part in the campaign to prevent the German troops in Normandy. 

In the aftermath of D-Day the A-20s were used to support General Patton’s 3rd Army during its advance across France, as well as taking part in the battle of the Falaise Pocket (where the 416th BG won a Distinguished Unit Citation). All three groups then moved to France, from where they took part in the attacks on the German Siegfried Line, while the 416th took part in Operation Market Garden.

In November 1944 the 416th began to convert to the Douglas A-26 Invader, and was soon followed by the 409th. This left the 410th as the only A-20 group during the battle of the Bulge. The group won the Distinguished Unit Citation for making five attacks on German troop concentrations on 23-26 December 1944, helping to break the momentum of the German attack. 

The 410th continued to operate the A-20 into April 1945. During this period it made a number of night attacks in combination with B-26 Marauders and A-26 Invaders, with the B-26s dropping flare to light up the target, the A-26 dropping target markers and the A-20 dropping the bombs. The 410th then began to convert to the A-26 itself, but the war ended before the new aircraft entered combat.

 

Wiki noted the timeframe for the actions involving JG 1, 3 and 11 in a comprehensive form year by year, where 1943 after Summer and early 1944 are the base for my "fake" missions:

Wikipedia List of Operations during the Battle of Europe

 

The colour schemes for 1943 are without the Invasion stripes and "normal" RAF and USAAF standard camouflage schemes for the plans. I try to get some examples or maybe you got already some!

Pleasure. Would it be a problem having non-historical? Corredt camos but not necessarily authentic serials/markings? It would certainly make it a tad quicker and easier to do? 12 Brits and 12 US? No invasion livery? How's that sound?

Yes, Raptorattacker,

 

non-historical is o.k. :) Important is the historical touch ;)

Melkarth what have you done!!  The Douglas A-20B is my Quick Mission Dueling nemesis since the Kuban update, its a heavy twin that refuses to act like Heinkel.

 

I MUST TAKE IT DOWN!  I'll show you the prove after the said duel (and I'll dueling "slash" fighting this thing three times: again....).

Well after a series of duels and fights (every single tough ones to say the least), I manage to brought down three waves of aces piloting the famous Douglas twin fighting bomber:

I'm telling ya the struggle was real:

Burning_Ace.thumb.png.17bf6629554bcc5fe924e04893b81547.png

I actually manage to kill the one of the aces:

Dead_Ace_above_the_clouds.thumb.png.6da94f366da81619ab4803f05fcdff54.png

But when its all over, I'd landed to a desolate reception just only a few nerdy radio aircraft controllers applause for downing three aces.  Its actually very fitting how much the world doesn't give a crap about my achievements (because that the truth):

Me-109_at_rest.thumb.png.c615a2ef1480ebb5699dca27ca7f6138.png

By the way, I appreciated the work you've done.  I'd love challenging you're and other skinners works on these aircraft, just to give em character (even when they becomes kills for the Pandemonium Magica "with horses" of course).  So I'll on a note: Thanks Melkarth.

Hi guys

 

Based on the fantastic template prepared by ICDP I was able to make this: A completely fictional skin for the lovely A-20B in a factory fresh finish.

Enjoy it and don´t scratch the paintwork... :lol:

Hi Trooper

 

In order to see your reactions... :lol:

 

No, joking aside, it did work, when I tested it... don´t know why it didn´t when you were downloading it... so sorry...

 

It seems I simply mixed up the download links... So, sorry again.

 

Try this link please:

Accattivante :)

 

Mi verrebbe quasi quasi da chiederti in futuro una livrea special color per lo Spitfire Mk. IXe.... :biggrin:

 

Sì, sarebbe bello anche con i colori della bandiera :good: 

 

Di fatto lo vedrei molto bene anche con la mimetica applicata sui B-26K Counter Invader utilizzati in Vietnam (https://www.cybermodeler.com/aircraft/a-26/a-26k_profile01.shtml): superfici superiori e laterali in Tan F.S. 30219, Dark Green F.S. 34079 e Medium Green F.S. 34102; superfici inferiori in Light Gray F.S. 36622 oppure (il che, secondo me, è ancor meglio) in Black F.S. 37038.

Hi guys

 

You might be wondering, this guy seems to sort of like the A-20...

But you´d be wrong... because I ABSOLOUTELY LOVE HER!!!

 

Aaaaaand look who arrived just now... Yes, it is her evil twin.

Completely fictional as well but darker and with a bit more wear and tear.

I hope you like it! Cheers! :drinks:

Playing a career BoS on A-20B, made an appropriate 4k skin-pack (9 skins with numbers from "1 white" to "9 white" ). The typical colors of the English "Bostons" received under Lend-Lease in 1942 was taken as a basis.
