Olive Drab Base coat appliedjeeptnz




Sprayed the base coat of #2050 Model Master Olive Drab (ANA 613). It went over the flat black coat very well, though I think it made the OD appear a little darker than I expected.



Then I wanted to lighten it up a bit using a color modulation style to bring some color contrast to the model. I chose #2051 Model Master Faded Olive Drab. However I personally prefer a slightly greener OD so I added in a bit of Testors Flat Yellow. I may have added a tad to much, as I think I over greened it a bit, but I think some of the later weathering will tone that down. Here are some pictures.. I tried not to cover the entire model in the faded color so there will be darker and lighter area's.

You can see some of the color modulation around the front fenders, wheels, and sides of the modeljeeplighterer2


Then I decided to move it back a little more towards a less green look and sprayed it lightly with Testors Model Master Faded Olive drab and I'm very happy with the result.

I got a better color and still can see a bit of the color moderation I wanted.
