Well September was going to be all about World war Two on this blog, but before I launched into that I just wanted to post up this pic and see if I can get any comments/opinions from you all as to which colours you thing best represent the MERDC camouflage scheme as used by the US Army in Europe in the early 1980s.
I've been struggling with this and have finally come up with what I think is a reasonable base colour - Tamiya Dark Green. I did want to use Vallejo US Dark Green but my lack of access to vallejo colours right now has stiffled that option.
I airbruushed the Tamiya colour yesterday onto my M106s, M901s and M1s and think it looks prety decent. So I created this little template on a piece of paper and last night painted on a variety of greens I have for the second colour. So here it is:
So far all I have really been able to do is to rule out the top three. Its going to have to be on of the bottom three but I really have no idea as to which...
This is to look like this (MERDC Winter Verdant):
Or Should I just skip the green and go to this (MERDC Summer Verdant):
As you can see I'm still confused - but need to make a decision soon as the Group Build ends on 2 Oct...
Any help greatly appreciated
