    I don't recall hearing of Dark Forest Green Blanco. I am aware of KG3 Khaki Green (Dark). I have seen it for sale from time to time at the Etobicoke and Ottawa Military shows. IIRC usually dated 1945.

    I assume this is NOT what you are looking for?

    Thanks, I'm wanting to cover up rust stains on P-51 webbing. I can't take out the rust without discoloring the webbing.

    I see very close matching green blanco on some 51 packs.

    If you can closely match the color with paint then that is an option that I would look at since it will not rub off like blanco (webbing cleaner) will.

    That's a great idea. A hobby shop or Canadian Armed Forces source?

    I have quite a few P51 webbing bits that have been painted.

    1951 Pattern Web

    Painting 1951 Pattern Web was quite common, the webbing was painted gloss OD and the metalwork gloss black. Rifles and Armoured regiments painted the web black.

    Ed you are dead on. I have seen gloss OD and black on P-51 webbing, thought it was blanco.

    What paint source is the best match? I can buy any extras you guys might have.

    Good Morning Everyone......

    For you people who have ever been to Calgary may remember the Ribtor Store...... It was a 4 story war surplus store which closed a couple of years ago..... I remember they used to have cases of blanco of all different colours..... On the last day of the close out sale everything in the store cost a dollar.....

    Personally, in the past I have used small containers of acrylic paint and mixed the colors until I obtained an appropriate color. Then I used a somewhat stiff brush and worked the paint into the cloth until I achieved the desired result. I found that if I thinned the paint and built up the color slowly that it was easier to get the desired result without overdoing it.
