    Hi all!

    Stu has asked me to paint a second version of his 120mm Brit Tanker with a camo Pixie suit.

    As mentioned on the previous thread it seems they were rare and reference is therefore even rarer!

    There's a gentleman over on onesixth forum who posted pics of a camo Pixie that he owns dated 1944, so in lieu of any other reference I will be using it to lay down the design for my rendition ;)

    The kit is obviously exactly the same so I will use some pics from my first thread here :)

    Parts again ....

    Face painted ...

    Here is the base colour down ..

    .. I'm saving the last level of highlighting until I have the camo pattern down. This is to help unify the colours and I want a faded and lived in look for the camo one ....

    That is as far as I have got, updates as I work on it :)

    Pedro ... Cheers mate :)


    Camo patterns!

    Mind bogglingly slow process of checking reference and then mapping out the colour blocks!

    This is done with the mid tone colour so that I can highlight at the next stage ( lots still to mark out :( )

    The green is AV Russian Uniform and Ger. Cam. Bright Green 2:1
    The brown is AV Burnt Umber ( surprise!! )

    :)

    Looking good Mark, the camo is coming together just fine. I konow how difficult is is to paint this with all the different highlights and shadows for the different parts of the patterns but you are making a fine job and I look foward to seeing the final result.

    Cheers

    Stu ... Cheers! :)

    Carl ... Thanks :)

    Tommi ... Many thanks :)

    Ken ... Thank you! :)

    Sam ... Cheers! :)

    Peter ... Again thanks :)


    Almost there!

    Just about finished, some tidy ups, some matting down and then a bit of light weathering to finish this off!

    I will also be adding some red leaves to the base to give it a splash of colour :)

    These camo patterns are hard work but always rewarding visually.... :whistle::whistle:

    A beezer Mark, this is my favourite version. Great job on the camo and a nice touch of dried mud.
