I'd like to start me El Alamein British Sherman soon. What's a good enamel to represent the Desert Pink that they used at that time?

 

Thanks,

The exact shade is open to debate so you could mix your own using a dessert sand/stone and a few drops of red.

 

It was officially/un-officially Mountbatten pink.

Mike Starmer, a very well respected researcher and author on Brit WWII Colours, has been posting some "tamiya mix formulas" on Missing Lynx. It just so happens that he posted a message on Desert Pink.
