    What colour for a 17cm Minenwerfer?...

    Hi all,

    Would anyone have any idea what colour would have been used on German 17cm Minenwerfer projectiles?
    I've seen a few original examples in varying shades, but of course, time and weathering throws up all sorts of weird and wonderful colours...
    I've been told by several people it might have been bog standard Field grey?
    Any idea's?
    Thanks in advance!

    As I have one, a "Brand" (incendiary) in the "flesh", I can confirm feldgrau for that type, markings on it are in red.

    Many thanks pzgr40/42,

    Is there any chance you might be able to post a pic so I can get an idea of the markings, paint shades, etc. Only ever seen one example with original paint, behind glass and too far away to get a decent idea.
    Many thanks again, much appreciated.
    The next step is to find the layout and text of a typical HE round. I have a Brand MW which is ripe for a repaint and stencilling hence the questions...
    Cheers!
