    Looking for help painting British MTP camo with acrylics. I have the colours I need but cannot seem to break the pattern down so I can see which colours need to put down in which order. Has anyone had a go yet? -I've not seen a completed Maurice Correy modern brit sniper figure on any forums so I guess I'm not alone in struggling with this.

    Cheers Gordy. I've actually seen that page already but it seems to be the only thing on the net. Does this mean nobody has painted their Moz Correy Sniper yet?

    Dave Cox did one earlier this year :

    I haven't seen any others-

    Tony Dawe has an excellent SBS on DPM (which is can serve as a reference)

    From wikipedia:

    "As part of the MOD's PECOC programme, three new camouflage patterns were being considered for issue to British forces. These were a revised temperate DPM using lighter colours, a new three-colour desert pattern with enhanced utility for night-time operations, and a hybrid four colour scheme using two colours from each of the previous patterns for use on webbing in all terrains."

    Hello There,

    Best advice is buy an Item of clothing, I have the under body armour Shirt , and field cap, I painted the Knight models green beret as a brit SF operator in Afghanistan as a present for a good mate of mine , unfortunately i did not photograph it.... However later I will take photos of the actual clothing items I used as reference and remember the sequence that I used... I hope this helps, it actually isnt as hard as you may be thinking, its far easier than US digi pattern.

    Will get some photos later

    Hope to help

    all the best
    Chis
