WORLD WAR TWO RESTORATION PRODUCTS
WWII United States Ordnance Stencils:
Both Allied and Axis ordnance was fully painted for corrosion prevention and for ammunition identification. For
identification purposes, paint was applied to a rubber stamp and then the ordnance was rolled over the stamp.
How original markings were applied:
How they work and what we offer: stencils or paint-mask are machine-cut on adhesive backed paper, ready to apply as a paint
masking. You will be sent a fully cut non-weeded stencil (inner and outer part of letter, number or character).
Why? Because of the variations of painting application by the restorer. See the "How To" to apply your stencil:

One of the most recent questions from those ordering stencils is "what paint do I use"? For black, used on Armor Piercing
rounds, I use Krylon Flat Black. For white stenciling, I use Krylon Flat White.
For other colors, I use a product developed by TM9 Ordnance Products and sold by Midwest Military
https://www.midwestmilitary.com/. They produce the most accurate Lusterless Yellow, which is perfect for early ordnance or
the yellow stencil itself, Semi-Gloss Munitions Cans - for the .30 and .50 caliber ammunition can and Olive Drab #8 which is
what I use on all of my WWII U.S. ordnance shown above.
Model Masters "Big Bad Blue" No. 28127 is the closest match, from a spray can, to WWII Practice Blue.
