Ripaman

1:24 scale AEC Matador 0854 with Coles Crane

Recommended Posts

I got some Humbrol 98 and 29 also the tamiya paint XF68, XF3 and XF1, mixed the 98 5 parts to 29 4parts and this is what comes out, I have not seen this colour so hope it is right.

Can anyone let me know if it looks close Thanks.

The color would appear to be a nice shade of bronze-green Richard but I am not an expert on the intricacies of BA greens and drabs I am afraid. Should it be completely matt or would it be a satin shade?

 Cheers

Julian

KFS do a few figures that could maybe be altered to give you something and there are the mechanic figures in coveralls by Tamiya that would need some alteration !

Colour looks a good representation of SCC2 to me.....With some filters and streaking it should look the business.  :coolio:

Just found this thread!

 

Utterly wow. Your imagination and skill are an inspiration. I know nothing about lorries or cranes, so if you don't mind I'll sit at the back and just watch a master at work. :o
