Team Yankee - your old paint sets are NOT obsolete

Recommended Posts

ZEKE helped me with the conversions. He did a LOT of work.

Also got advice from forum discussions at WWPD.

 

Here is what I found:

1) Your "Colours of War" and Vallejo Model paints can be used for Team Yankee.

2) Controversy/confusion around "Soviet Green" not a big deal

3) some mix-up in "Maverick Khaki" product code (and therefore paint matching) between the American and British paint sets.

4) No COW match for Hind Blue, but there is a Vallejo color that is a close match.

 

I do not profess to be perfect, so if someone has different information or disagrees, plz comment.

 

Listed below are Team-Yankee Paint conversions - Team-Yankee (TYP) = Colours of War (FWP) = Vallejo Model Color

Note: Vallejo Model Color paint codes usually have a "70." prefix

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Team-Yankee (TYP) = Colours of War (FWP) = Vallejo Model Color

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

TYP350 Yankee Green = FWP347 GI Green = FWP347 is a new colour, between 993 US Dark Green and 895 Gunship Green

TYP321 Cobra Drab = FWP321 Sherman Drab = 887 Brown Violet

TYP340 Warthog Green = FWP340 Heer Green = 979 German Camo Dark Green

TYP481 Rocket Steel = FWP481 Cold Steel = 865 Oily Steel

TYP383 Woodland Brown = FWP383 Motherland Earth = 983 Flat Earth

TYP303 Thunderbolt Grey = FWP303 Panzer Grey = 995 German Grey

**TYP344 Maverick Khaki = FWP344 Jager Green = 833 German Camo Bright Green

TYP492 Ordinance Shade = FWP492 Manstein Shade = 201 Black Shade

 

**Note: in the British paint set, "Maverick Khaki" is listed as code "TYP346" and compatible with FWP346 Afrika Green = 881 Yellow Green

 

Team Yankee Soviet Paint Set (TYP191)

http://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=4953

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Team-Yankee (TYP) = Colours of War (FWP) = Vallejo Model Color

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

TYP350 Soviet Green (1)* = FWP348 Firefly Green = 894 Russian Uniform

TYP350 Soviet Green (2)* = FWP327 Military Khaki = 988 Khaki

TYP350 Soviet Green (3)* = <none> = 857 Golden Olive

TYP323 Leather Brown = FWP323 Boot Brown = 872 Chocolate Brown

TYP352 Crocodile Yellow = FWP362 Sicily Yellow = 914 Green Ochre

TYP492 Ordinance Shade = FWP492 Manstein Shade = 201 Black Shade

TYP326 Comrade Khaki = FWP326 Comrade Khaki = 880 Khaki Grey or 879 Green Brown

TYP402 Hind Blue = ? = 961 Sky Blue

TYP481 Rocket Steel = FWP481 Cold Steel = 865 Oily Steel

 

*Soviet Green(1), (2) and (3) is problematic. A close match for several, but not an exact match for any.

I embraced this quote: Bcorpswriter on http://forum.wwpd.net/viewtopic.php?t=2531&p=24035 'Re: What would be considered an "accurate" Soviet green?'

"Short answer: anything. The Soviets produced millions of combat vehicles in umpteen different factories scattered across one of the largest continuous land masses in the world. They were not all using the same paint pot, no reason you should either. I currently have Russian stuff painted in 6 different shades ranging from pale light green up to very dark olive drab, not to mention the US and British lend lease stuff. Pick a color that makes you feel good and go with it."

The main thing I noticed with the Team Yankee paints and Colors of War paints is that they use the same serial number even though they sometimes change the name, example:

 

TYP341 NATO Green = FWP341 Tankovy Green

 

So then, I just had to find the colors of war conversion charts to vallejo
