French Painting Guides

The below links are a collection of painting guides available elsewhere on the internet.  Due to the extensive nature of the guides that are out there Spotting Round is now splitting them into groups.  Hopefully this will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.

Spotting Round is always looking for additional painting guides.  If you know of one, please let us know!  Use the Contact Us page.  We're always happy to publish another link.  Also, please let me know if any of the links go dead.


WWII French Painting Guides and Color Guides

A quick note on French armor.  French camouflage patterns were applied at the factory and varied from factory to factory.  It was not uncommon to have vehicles with different camouflage patterns within the same unit.  It all depended on where the vehicle came from.  So to be as authentic as possible, paint up a few different patterns in your vehicles.
