Ordnance Painting

Postby snapdragon » Sat Aug 23, 2014 10:37 pm

I have been searching the net etc for markings and colour details for the Tiffy's weapons load.

On the decal sheet there are a set of decals for rockets. There are two different sets of rockets in the kit, but as far as I can see only one complete set with variations for the two different rockets.

I have found this information so far....

Bombs and Rockets, overall dark bronze green.

Filled" bombs had a 1" red band painted around the nose along with other coloured bands denoting the type of explosive they were filled with:

Amatol ----- light green
RDX -------- blue
TNT --------- light green and black bands
Torpex ----- light blue
A/P bombs had white bands painted on either side of the red 'filled' band, while Semi-A/P had a single band painted immediately in front of the red 'filled' band

H.E. = 1/2 inch bright Red band at nose.
S.A.P. = 1/2 inch White band above Red band
A.P. = 1/2 inch White band each side of Red band.

I have managed to find these pictures

Does anyone else have anything for this?

Also.... how the hell do you mask off the nose of the rockets for the bands???
