Salutations everyone! Here you can see the camo has been added to the tiger. I am not the greatest with the historical camo patterns yet. But practice makes perfect.
I used Tamiya Nato Brown XF-68 and Olive Green XF-58 for the camo.
Below you can see a test paint on a Fallschirmjager with FG42 Assault Rifle. The only things I have painted are the trousers, smock, and helm. The skin is just a base coat. Originally I was playing with the thought of doing a different camo that the standard Splinter Pattern. I even played with painting them for Italy. But the Splinter camo was used quite a bit on both the Eastern and Western fronts.
I didn't have the Luftwaffe uniform blue color. So I achieved this by painting a base color of German Grey, then added a little bit of Vallejo Field Blue to German Grey for a highlight. I feel this is very close to all the pictures and color plates I have seen of the Fallschirmjager and Luftwaffe. I feel like many people just paint a regular dark blue too often for zee boys!
I hate painting camo!!!!
