    We must hunt the Germans! LRDG Crew 1942

    WE used the following:
    Master Box Set: 3598 (Straight from the box) (https://www.mbltd.info/)
    Black Dog Diorama Base: D35093 (60mm X 60mm)( https://blackdog-model.com/d35093-1-35-sandbags-base/)
    Eta Diorama Accessories no.611 with the maps for the Desert War WWII (https://www.eta-diorama.com/code-611/)
    I can say that the vignette is finished! Here you can see the result of the painting with Glazes over the black & White preshading using an airbrush. The Glaze Medium 73.596 is necessary also in summer as it delays the drying time.This is just three layers (including the highlights and shadows). The colours used are mostly from Vallejo Model Color series and are:

    Shirts & tunic: Green Ochre 914
    Shorts: Desert Yellow 977
    Belt and canvas: Khaki Grey 880
    Gaiters: Green Brown 879
    Sandals & Boots: Panzer Aces Leather Belt 312, Flat Brown 984
    Head Cover: Panzer Aces Splinter Camouflage Base 345, Ivory 918
    For the Highlights of Uniform I added Buff 976 and for extra highlights Ivory 918.
    Flesh as usual the Panzer Aces triades: Flesh Base 341, Highlight Flesh 342 and Shadows Flesh 343.
    Beard: Flat Brown 984
    Finally we passed a layer of dry pigment of Vallejo Dark Yellow Ochre 73103 and fixed on using matt effect thinner!
