For you rivet and button counters out there, I used Aervoe paints which are matched to the US Government's FS595 color specifications for these paint schemes. ( I bought the rattle cans here). The light streaks are sandstone. The models were dry-brushed with VJ Khaki also. I used blue tack with them during that rare warm-up we had last week.
I can use these vehicles for Battlegroup Cold War, Rapid Fire ABLE ARCHER, Team Yankee, really whatever modern game I feel like.
|After finishing this platoon, I'm going to paint my entire American 15mm force in MERDC, regardless of historic precedent (1983 versus 1984 versus 1985 geez!) I just like how they look.|
|The Zvezda models are outstanding, too. Lots of detail. Much more so than their M1 Abrams kit...|
|I had to be careful because I wanted to go nuts with the black "gull wings"|
Again, very happy with how these guys turned out. Hoping the M113s, Mortar carriers, ITOWs, and the tanks themselves turn out like this! Have a great week!
