HELP! Somewhere on this site I saw a thread or post that talked about the various shades of Olive Drab paint and it's not Bob Letterman's Weathering Olive Drab thread. Does anyone know where the thread that talks about the various shades of Olive Drab paint and has color images of them is?

Thanks and cheers

Is that WW2 or Korea? The guy on the left is in OD Green and the guy on the right is in Olive Green. Two totally different colours.

I know that olive drab change from early WW2 to late WW2. I sure wish I knew where I saw those colour swatches. Ahe well, I'' look when I have tome. It's a quest. LOL

Thanks and cheers

I wish people created websites instead of facebook pages. I can't look at anything without it telling me I have to create an account.

Ditto. I don't have Facebook but did scroll the page and saw that it was BRITISH and Commonwealth colours though.

This is something like what I was thinking about. It is NOT the exact image I saw as the image I saw was not a manufacturers paint.
