Default MARPAT

Has anyone identified or seen which modeling paints apply to the Marine Corps new MARPAT colors on their uniforms?

I've learned that the names of the four colors are Highland 480 @ 18%, Light Coyote 481 @ 30%, Urban Tan 478 @ 47% and Desert Light Tan 479 @ 5% coverage.

Anyone?

Tom? With your eye for paint... well let me post a picture of someone wearing MARPAT.

This is my best buddy currently in Iraq. I posted photos with different lighting.

Thanks for the link, I saw that one but didn't think the colors matched. Might look fine on a small figure but I'm planning to paint a tank! What do you think?

get a piece of the cloth and go to your local Lowe's they have a device that can match the color. (I am sure other paint stores have the same thing)

Just a thought
