Hi Pete,

 

Amazing work, I'm jealous of it!

Can you tell me what colors you used for these figures?

 

With regards,

Rob

 

Thanks Rob!

 

I am painting these figures in the multicam pattern, which may not be appropriate for the time you want to depict. IIRC, the multicam was introduced roughly around Operation Iraqi Freedom, and is no longer used-

 

anyway, here is the Vallejo paint guide I used:

Pete,

This, like everything you model, is exemplary. Whether you claim to know anything about the subject or not appears irrelevant.

These figures are without doubt, sensational.

 

Awesome work dude.

 

Cheers

Thanks Guy-

a compliment from a modeler as talented as you are is a real shot in the arm! Appreciate the kind words my friend..

 

Cheers

Hello all-

 

I’ve started on the pilots, so I thought I’d share the dance steps of how I paint these guys-

After assembling the figures, any gaps are filled with Apoxi Sculpt and smoothed/ blended with water and a shaped toothpick. When dry, they get a primer shot of Tamiya deck tan or Buff-

then the the greens are laid down..then highlights dry brushed with a lighter version of the base color, and the recesses washed with a darker version of the base color

...same for the Browns-

...then the rest of the colors-

its important to pay attention to how the garment is constructed. The pattern does not cross over/across seams-

 

more to follow

 

Pete

The helmet on the left is all but done- the right is still in progress. The visor gets painted with a base coat of “black” then a coat of Tamiya clear green, then Tamiya smoke, then a few coats of Future to really shine them up.

lots more to do!

Can you give a color call out for the pilot's helmets and visor, and cords please like you did the uniform?

Hi Tim,

 

for the helmets and face shields, I used 2 colors out of that palette list above; MC 922 Uniform Green, and MC 822 German Camo Black Brown. I just mixed them to match reference photos, but I never bothered to check/look for an FS number for the helmets- could be Helo Drab perhaps. The visors are explained above.. the cords are MC 822.

 

I mix mix the paint on my palette as I do each one; so each helmet is a slightly different shade of the same color, which I’m OK with. Also, the wash will change the color slightly as well-

 

cheers

 

Pete
