Ukrainian camo
Posted by Tankluver on Thursday, March 09, 2017 11:14 PM

currently trying to ge together the paints that would be required to paint Birch camoflauge and Flectarn. I am looking for paints from vallejo but I am open for suggestions when it comes to different paint manufactures. I have done some research for Birch and flecktarn camo but I keep on finding different ways to paint it. Has nyone found a tried and true way to do these different unifroms. I was looking at Tamiya bundeswehr kits for what they suggested to paint the tank commanders on a leopard and a SPG and the paint colors that they used were different for each. For birch all I could find was the vdv figures from dragon and I had a hard time disemminating the H paint colors, one figure had two coors for the camo and then another had a helmet with birch on it and it had a conglomeration of three colors to make the green then another color for the sand tone. 

Anyways all help is welcome I just need something that will make sense and come out close to what I am looking for.

You may need to clarify.  Particularly as to time period. 

Current Ukraine camo looks like this:
Flektarn is a German camo released just before Reunification, but remains standard:


And a 'desert' pattern

But for "brich" all my memory comes up with is the Waffen SS camo paterns, such as:

The scale matters, too, as generally can use a "salt" technique for a large portion of the camo at 1:3211:35/54mm.  But, larger scales might suggest a different approach; just as smaller scale would necessitate yet a differnet technique.

The ukrainians started wearing a mixture of camoflauge in 2014 during the ATO. So theres guys wearing birch, flecktarn and the new camo. Its all a big conglomeration.
