I found this very informative manual used by US forces in WW2 about how to cameoflage vehicles. I thought it might come in handy for all you model makers when painting your IG tanks and building dioramas. The sections on the use of natural materials and vehicle pattern painting are particularly useful.
The problem with using real camo patterns is they often work too well and nobody actually sees the model.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
I agree, it usually works too well, try not using camo on everything, and just certain areas, or like the stock karserkins, with random bits...

No Cbrate is spot on, the point in the real world with cammo is to make the person indistinguishable from the background, the point with painting is entirely different, plus scale etc effects it
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Hey man, nice find.
Knowing how real camo works will be useful in allowing you to figure out how to paint your vehicles to look "camed" but still visible. A fine resource.
BTW I've found that you can use cammo schemes on small vehicles as long as you use a bunch of edge highlights. Cammo patterns tend to be flat and break up the shape, so you really have to work to conserve the detail on a model.
I tried to rep you for the find but apparently I have to spread it around a bit more. I wish they had a function to show you who the last few people you repped were.
