Vallejo offers a color specific set for the Japanese Army in WWII, covering both the early and later type paint schemes.

Appreciate the review of them and the photos of the actual colors. It is nice to have this (the Mr. Color set is a bit hard to find) for colors that will be distinct from the German camo colors often used by modelers.

Darren, thanks for getting this up.

Matt, thanks for the comment. This set will be much easier to find and use. Now we just need a few more kits to use it on.

Oh man, I want a set of these! Russ, great demonstration.

To judge for yourself the authenticity of these colors, consider this book by researcher of Imperial Japan Nick Millman:

Japanese Armour Colours, A Primer, 1937-1945

Roman and Fred, thanks for the comments.

Fred, you won't be disappointed, and you could finish plenty of kits. No more mixing colors trying to find a match.
