Sometimes, just sometimes, an idea hatched at 2am and implemented at 3am without too much thinking about it actually works. I had purchased a couple of those BBI Russian addon sets and wanted to try and change the jackets colour to green. Dyeing seemed to be the best way forwards but how to keep the 'fur' color blue?
At 2am this morning I said, "#@&k it, what have I got to lose?" and grabbed the air brush. I mixed a THIN light yellow green colour from Tamiya yellow green xf4 and flat green xf5 with lots of thinners. I slowly built the colour up untill I got a result that I liked. One thng to watch out for is that the BBI camo colours react with the Tamiya thinners if you really soak the uniform. They wont run but will come off on your fingers if you get it too wet. So slowly, slowly, catchy monkey. Here's a closer look.
This will all be old news to some but I thought that it came out okay and gives me another camo to play with.
And that's gotta be good, no?
Thanks for taking a look.
