Colour of French 155 mm. shells for the GPF
Permalink Closed


Hello!
Awaiting delivery of the DES-kits French 155 mm. GPF in 1:35 I'm currently researching the gun's ammunition. From photos on this great site it seems the shape of it's shells matches more modern 155 mm. ammunition pretty well. I have ordered some 155 mm. shells from Legend and plan to use them with the gun. Regarding the colour of the shells I'm not sure what to paint them.


From a photo on this site that I suspect show French 155 mm. shells I get some help.

Could any of you please confirm that the photo do indeed show French 155 mm shells or give further info on the colour of the GPF-shells?


Thanks in advance.


Regards


Claus, Denmark
