Title: Help? LAV-150 interior colour decision
Post by: Old Wombat on July 08, 2020, 07:03:26 am
OK, I've seen photo's of LAV-100/150's with their insides painted OD, white & US AFV Interior (Puke) Green.

I'm currently building a LAV-150 variant which will be very open & I'm torn between either white or puke green.

Anyone have any preferences? :-\

In my view armour just looks better with white interiors.

Moss (Puke) Green.  All US vehicles I've been in or examined have had Moss Green interiors.   :thumbsup:

White.  Simply because it is the more impractical of the two as it will quickly become grubby shades of grey.  Green is much more practical which is why it will never have been specified by military procurement people.

Right, painting will be starting shortly (some time over the next 7 days), as I've just put together the last of the sub assemblies.

Sea Foam/Moss/Puke* Green is the winner on 4 votes across two sites, with white getting only 2 votes.

Thanks for your input guys! :thumbsup:




(*: Note, I call it this 'coz this is what a US Marine I knew called it, 'coz every time he sees it that's the smell he associates with it from his time in tuna boats (AAVP-7/7A1's))

I wonder if the new AAV the Marines are working on will have a built in system for washing out the insides? :o
