    projectile colour

    I know it has been discussed before, but I cannot find any info back on this subject: what RAL colour approaches the yellow of british ww2 shells most? It's for a 3,7 inch HE AAA shell
    Thanks in advance,
    Regards, DJH

    The correct colour is BS381C 359 Middle Buff and the closest RAL colour is 1024. It should be flat not gloss.

    Thank you very much sir, I just ordered two spay cans. Semi gloss however as flat is not available. I'll just have to spray a layer transparant matt varnish over it when ready.
