  1. Nice cammo mate.I dont think they used the blue in the filed but I would paint them that way(blue) myself just because thats how I would want them to look.How many more Airfix sets to go?

  4. They are looking great. May I ask wich colour you took for the "blue" parts?

  5. Danke :-)
    The "blue" is Formula P3Cygnar Blue highlight, mixed with a bit of middle brown, then highlighted with a bit of white. I promise they look much darker for real.

  6. The blue should be field gray, other than that, nice work, the camo looks good, and thank you for not trying to add the splinters to the pattern :)

  13. I have Photoshop, so I color-correct my photos if something weird is going on like these blue helmets.

  15. Thanks. This is only the second time I´ve had a bash at cammo...I just more or less splatted it on..no pattern but it seemed to luckily end up in the right places........more or less :-)
