    Very nice finish. Is that the Arms Corps Models decals on the smoke grenade?

    Yes, they are Arms Corp. The decals on the radio set are part of that too.

    Well, not a silly question at all. I base coated the figure with flat black. Then I added large swaths of tannish color. Then the green was added. I then added the smaller patches of brown. I had to constantly go back and adjust and add tan, green or black. I did add highlights with lightened black and green. When I was satisfied with the colors and layout, I gave the camo area a wash of lightened flat black. Last step was a coat of Testors Dullcoat shot thru the airbrush.

    The face paint was diluted acrylic applied in thin layers. That's after I painted the face as if it would not have camo. My first attempt was not to my liking, so I stripped it and started over. :(

    For both the uniform and face I downloaded pictures for reference which really helped.

    Thanks for the comments everyone-
    Matt
