Paint on engine

i thought military engines were all Egg shell, light blue?





The colour you refer to is Sky Blue as used on the Rolls Royce B range, etc. This was introduced around 1950ish, prior to that armoured engines and sometimes B vehicle engines, were in Eau-de-Nil. There is no hard and fast rule as we have tried to get confirmation of painting instructions. I have seen engines for wartime vehicles rebuilt by civilian contractors and manufacturers in the factory colours, ie. Humber green, Austin green, Bedford black, etc. When I was in working in the army workshops, all rebuilt engines at that time were in Sky Blue, but sometimes Bedford engines came in from contractors paint in IRR green,
