For quite awhile I had a difficult time with finding the correct colors for MERDC, that is until I discovered AERVOE paints! Where better to find US Field Drab than through a company who sells Federal Standard Patter 595 paints! It's genius! (and I didn't pay the standard Aervoe price, either. I found 595 standard Field Drab and Forest Green for 9 bucks a can!)
So, armed with blue-tack, I started in on my self propelled, M109 howitzers from Zvezda. Let me tell you, I couldn't be happier with the results!
|Heavy khaki dry brush. 2 x cans will paint all of my microarmor and probably all of my 15mm stuff too! they're big cans.|
The other 2 guns from the platoon have been base-coated in field drab and are waiting for their blue tack! Mission accomplished! "Rounds Complete on One!"
