    If the Red coat was painted in enamels I would love to know how you got that look. Very realistic

    Hi John, thanks for your comments.
    Usually I use a mix of red (nr 60) and dark red (nr 153) as basic colour. The first shadow I use a mix of dark green (nr 30) with dark red (nr 153). For dark shadow I add some black (nr 33). Highlighted with basiccolour and more red (nr 60). Highlighted with a mix of red (nr 60 ) and flesh (nr 61). To get a dirty look, I use some shades of dark tan (nr 26), leather brown (nr 133), brown (nr 62) and black (nr 33). All matt varnished with TESTORS spray lacquer.
    I hope it helps.
