The Hobby Boss directions show multiple camouflage colors, but in 1982 they were solid green. Any idea what sort of green? RAL or FS numbers preferred.

From the images that can be easily found with a Google search for “Falklands LVTP” it looks like a Forest Green type colour.

I built an Argentine LVTP-7 from the Falklands War years ago and used a Forest Green version.

When I make it, several years ago, I use Humbrol 116

Paint4models.com suggests Tamiya AS-09, which is a paint I have. Thanks!
