Military Vehicles, June 1997,: [MV] CHAMP ENGINE PAINT

Hi Paul,

I finally have the engine out of my Champ and almost ready for painting.
All the good books refer to the colour of the engine as being "Ground
Equipment Blue".

Just wondering if you were able to get a match on this colour or did you
just use something that was close. I have tried to get Ground Equipment
Blue from several paint suppliers here but they just laugh at me when I
tell them that it is a colour used mainly by the British military about 40
years ago.

Hope you can help.
