    HTK-AS04.2 “US Army Air Force paint set” – withdrawal of HTK-AS04 set and replacement with HTK-AS04.2

    Since mid-1941 USAAF adopted onto majority of its aircraft a standard camouflage scheme of Olive Drab No. 41 (with blotches of Medium Green No. 42 randomly applied to blur the edges of the plane) over Neutral Grey No. 43. By late 1943, as a consequence of increasing air superiority on ETO, use of camouflage by USAAF was officially abandoned, however due to various reasons it was still being applied by some of the plane manufacturers till the end of war. In such case new colours were predominantly used - ANA 613 Olive Drab (lighter shade) over ANA 603 Sea Grey (more blueish tint).

    HTK-AS04.2 includes standard camouflage colours of USAAF planes from 1941 till 1945. The set contains:

    • HTK-A004 – US Olive Drab 41 (Early) - Standard base colour of upper surfaces of majority of USAAF aircraft from June 1941 until late 1943
    • HTK-A019 – Medium Green 42 – Used from mid-1942 for blotches along all edges on upper side of the wing and tail, also on the fuselage sides
    • HTK-A033 – Neutral Grey 43 – Standard colour of lower surfaces of USAAF aircraft in "Olive Drab" schemes from June 1941 till late 1943
    • HTK-A018 – US Olive Drab (Late) – ANA 613 Olive Drab, used from late 1943 till end of WW2 for upper surfaces of camouflaged USAAF aircraft
    • HTK-A031 – Gunship Grey - ANA 603 Sea Grey, used from late 1943 till end of WW2 for lower surfaces of camouflaged USAAF aircraft
    • HTK-A078 – Aluminium - Overall colour of USAAF aircraft after late 1943, when camouflage was abandoned except for night fighters and transports
