After looking at the RLM72/73 colour chips in Ken Merrick's "Luftwaffe camouflage and markings" books, the green was painted using XF-27 Black Green, and post-shaded with XF-27 lightened with XF-22 RLM Grey and XF-67 NATO Green. The (?) black-grey was painted in a light, patchy mix of XF-61 Dark Green, XF-63 German Grey, and XF-85 Tyre Black.

Markings were sprayed on using masks supplied by Mal Mayfield of Miracle Paint Masks in the UK.

 

Thanks for looking. Cheers, Ralph.

No way an Earthling can do that! You've got to be Intergalactic!

Damn, Ralph, you are just too good. Great. Just great. Appreciate the tutorial. Only wish I had the skill to replicate it.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

I'm loving this! :speak_cool:

 

Superb painting skills and VERY cool pre-shading. That looks fantastic! Life is just one big school day here on LSP, you never stop learning.... (I may 'borrow' that technique if you don't mind :innocent:)

I love it. It really did start looking like a Dr1 at one point.

 

What I really do like about your style(s) is the way the finish has a real depth of finish - like the patina on an old well used and polished piece of furniture. It looks just right.

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

Matt
