Hello everyone.
Last completed model (s).
It was very interesting to make a spotted camouflage.
I hope you will enjoy. :)

For colours, this is hard to beat

We used this book for work.
Everything is described in great detail, a lot of photos.

Really looking forward to this and will no doubt do at least 2 of them. One thing I was curious about tho' (and please don't take this as a criticism of your model)  but I was under the impression that the way camouflage  was applied consisted of a base coat of Zinc Chromate primer followed by olive green sprayed on top in irregular patterns and then sealed with matt varnish mixed with 5% olive green again??  The way yours is finished it gives the effect of being the other way around? Anyway, as I said just curious.

Wish I could get hold of the MMP book too. I've got the other one.

Great model. I'm most impressed by the paint work.

Yes you are right. I first stained the model with olive, then painted yellow spots.
It seemed to me that it was more logical to paint this way.
