Many of the Iraqi hardware was bought from Brazil, APCs, light tanks, missile launchers.
Our own hardware tend to be dark green, very dark green. Also I believe that the Brasilam troops in service of the U.N. (in Haiti and other humanitarian relief missions) should have some in U.N. white.
About the light tanks, Brazilian APCs and Light Tanks are modular, the Cascavel Light tank is an Urutu with a tank tower.
Brazilian Army Insignia ready to be stenciled on the side of the Urutu/Cascavel.
P.S.: The preview doesn't show the image, because the stencil is white on tranparent background.
P.P.S.: Seeing the color on my work monitor, it seems spot-on. My tablet may put tricks on me, since he alters display luminosity to conserve battery power. About other colors, I think the navy has some in light gray, and the air force doesn't bother with armored APCs. (P.P.P.S.: Researched better. Navy uses the 8-wheeled MOWAG Piranha III)

Papercraft models can be surprisingly strong for their sizes.
I constructed the hexagonal gatehouse from mageknight, without any structural reinforcement aside of gluing the textures in cereal boxes. My 11kg, 3 year old was using the model as a improvised step to reach toys in the upper shelfs of her bedroom. It barely buckled...
Only five and half years late to the battlefield, it's Forum Horde #106 Real World Armies! Since the only entry for this lost Horde is my Urutu I decided to create some variety and there are nine different color variations plus three with Iraq, Brazil, and UN markings. onemonk.com/fh-2013.html
I still want to finish up the Cascavel/turret version, check back in five years or so...

Hm, looking at it again it looks like I'm missing texture details on the MG and little bits on the turret components. All of the color and fx texture work is done, all the parts are there and should build up fine.
poor tanks!!!! T.T ... i want to see more boss!!! more tanks!!!
Me too! But...
My main laptop survived, just the power cord was shredded. The old back up one seems to be toast, and unfortunately it's the one with the 3d modelling programs I use to create vehicles, which is why I kept a machine around with an outdated OS. I guess I need to learn a new 3d program to do my vehicles. Fortunately, I do have a habit of exporting models to do white builds so I do have a pile of "idea vehicle prototypes" that I can texture and finish.
Vermin King: I didn't post at the time (fairly angry still), but my June Papercraft meeting was cancelled by the venue without even notifying me. They said they would call the previous participants, but I don't know if I can trust them

sergeantmajormarkoff: I like it very much. Somehow seems like it would make the transition between Arrakis, Barsoom, and the Sahara very nicely.

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
