What is the closest match to in Vallejo paints for the Canadian combat fatigues in Afghanistan.

Desert Yellow seems a little to dark. Also what would be other colors on the uniform pattern. (Vallejo paints)

Canadian CADPAT Arid is VERY CLOSE to Marines MARPAT Desert

You can find details on MARPAT Arid here

Arid Cadpat and Desert Mapat are distinctly different in colour... I have multiple samples of each ... Not even close..

Great...then can you answer his question...or are you just being a rivet counter troll... At least I attempted to help....all your doing is trying to score points for being right... This is what pisses me of the most...people are trying to get help and some people just want to inflate their egos... So you have 1/1 scale BDU's in both CadPat Arid and MarPat Desert... Won't ask how you got the CADPAT...because if you are not current CF then owning a pair is illegal.... but you would know that...

Look at my post I said VERY CLOSE...not exact match...remember its 1/35 scale...

Give him the correct Vallejo colors for CADPAT Arid...we are all waiting for your wisdom...

I just said they are not even close, my opinion, sorry if it pushed you over the redline Marc.

I don't have a Vallejo color chart so I can't help in that respect.

Google images is a good place to get an idea of what Arid CADPAT looks like and go from there.
