I would need some advice how to paint my Italian Coloniale car.
It would be depicted in Africa 1942-43, but I have no idea what color to use even after hours of internet research.

I have Tamiya and Vallejo paints mainly. Which paint is the best match or what is the best mix?

Thank you in advance!

Here's a place to start. Color references and a way to get them all in one. The gray green and dark green were standard Army colors in Italy. The sand colors were for use in the desert. The others could be used as camo patterns or in the case of the red brown, the base color.
