    Great job. I like the jacket alot, the various tones of of the medium green on the shoulders and tops of the pockets is great!

    Would you share your paint colors for skin tones, and the uniform?

    Is there a little bit of blue in th shadows of the trousers/pants?

    Also what was the technique you used to for the helmet?

    Did you use acrylics, oils, or pigments for the dirt on the knees?

    Thanks for sharing the pictures

    Hi Bigtood

    For skin use:

    - Base: Arena marron 876 + Uniforme Ingles 921 + Rojo mate( Muy poco)957 + Violeta 960
    - Luces: Carne dorada 845
    - Sombras: Cad.Tostado 814 y Marron oliva 889.

    The shadows of the pants are pulled directly by adding black to the base of Fieldgrey.

    Wow ... for the helmet .... is a technique used to powder the tanks ... there is a base color and then a layer airbrush with Tamiya buff, then with a flat brush with white spirit are given passes to down to remove this paint and make that effect.

    I use acrylics for the dry mud and wet mud oils.

    Glad you like, if you need more help, let me know.
