There’s a fantastic piece by a reenergised Jay, over on Taranis Blog:

https://taranis.blog/2018/09/05/l119a2-paint-jobs/

Amongst other painting techniques, the article considers the use of Kryptek stencils and ceramic coatings on UKSF L119A2s in the wild.

Kryptek provides an exciting option for those UKSF enthusiasts who plan on getting nasty with rattle cans; and Jay has used his creative skills to deliver a mock up (based on a non-public in the wild pic) with which readers can visualise the reality.

Not only that, but he’s also highlighted another interesting look. I’m reliably informed the coating in question is Duracoat – selected perhaps because it’s cheaper than Cerakote. I would further offer that the colour is close to FDE.
