MK2 Transit paint colours

Postby neilc69 » Tue Jun 28, 2011 6:14 pm

Does anyone here know what colours the original MK2 and the face lifted MK2's were produced in?
I have looked through the sales brochures in the other thread but cannot seem to find them.
If anyone could list them, that would be wonderful.
Thanks
Neil

Nice one guys. Thanks.
All that I was looking to do was to try and match the paint on my models as close as possible to the real thing to keep it looking authentic.
