Camouflage for
Posted by Srpuln10 on Saturday, August 24, 2019 11:42 AM

I'm doing a couple of dragon kits. The monte cassino ones plus I've gotten the two Italy kits also. On the back of the boxes are the paint guide. I can see the ones thats field gray and dark yellow. But trying to get the camouflage color right and scheme is a little tricky for me. The boxes has different paint numbers. So  I'm asking for help,ideas,info just anything will help. I've done some online studying on the Fallschirmjäger. But nothing  definitive. Thanks as always.

Dragon sets give Gunze Sanyo as colour referances. I take it it your trying to do the splinter pattern camo. If so, for the 3rd colour you should need red brown. The rain streaks should be black but they are tricky to paint.

I'm trying to get the splinter look but it is tricky. I may have to just the the best I can. I've got some tamiya figures that I'm not using. They're from a 88mm kit but I'm using some dragon and trumpeter with it.  I guess I'll just practice on them till I get it right. Or just go another way.

I have not done the German para's uniform but i have done a few of the army sp-linter pattern camo's. I would not worry about getting the pattern exact, but just do it in small stages, you can always go back and fill bits in, and just use a very fine brush.

If you wnat tricky, try SS camo uniforms Bang Head

Second that.  If you can find that or a similar set (I think Lifecolour is another maker that has one), it will take the guesswork out of the process for you.

For what it's worth, I've used Tamiya acrylics khaki, red brown, and green, as my base colors.

Hey guys just wanna say tks for the info. I'm still in the learning stages of modeling and painting. I know that the more I do the better I'll get. I'm trying to stay as close to the real thing as possible. I appreciate all y'all help and I'll definitely get some of the paint. I do use tamiya paint and have had some experience with Vallejo. If I'm going to spend the money I want it to ne right or as close as I can get it. Again guys tks so much for the info. Everyone has been a big help.
