Heya, Folks,

I'm getting ready to paint my Italerie LCM-3 and LVT-(A)4...

Does anyone have any color pictures of the three or four-color Iwo Jima camo color scheme...? There's plenty of black and white shots, but a color shot would help to get the "feel" of the scheme.

And does anyone have any suggestions for Tamiya colors to paint the LCM-3? Most ship-to-shore craft seem to be gray, but somebody mentioned a blue-gray color as well... Any thoughts...?

I've got some color plates from the Concord book on Amtracs which have the 3 color camo pattern on the LVT(A) 4 and the LVT(A) 2 (if I remember correctly it's the LVT(A) 2). Tamiya XF18 Medium Blue is what I've used to represent the dark Blue-Grey on the LCM-3, Model Masters offers a Dark Blue-Grey in their acrylic line which also looks all right also.
