Hi List,

I have recently become a member of the group that operates the Fort Snelling
Military Museum in Saint Paul, Minnesota. We are in the process of restoring
a variety of vehicles (mostly armored), from WWII to the Present. As a part
of the restoration process, we want to repaint all of the vehicles to their
original colors. We understand that the color "Olive Drab" has gone through
some changes over the years. We need any and all specs, part numbers,
Pantone Color Chart numbers, National Stock Numbers, sources of supply, and
any other information available that would describe the color as it
progressed from WWII, to Korea, to Vietnam, to the present.

Additionally, we are cleaning up the interior of a M114 Recon APC and we
want to apply a fresh coat of paint. The paint that is called out in the
spec is a two-part epoxy and we would rather not have to deal with the fumes
and waste by-products. Does anyone know of a paint that would provide for a
good color match, with reasonable durability. The original color is an off
white with a slight green tint.

Thanks in advance,
