basic step by step painting guide for US vehicles in the Vietnam war.

As promised here is a quick run down on how to paint US vehicles in the Vietnam war.

Note: this step by step assumes you have an airbrush and have access to Tamiya colour acrylic paint.

Step 1: base coat the model with black primer.
Step 2: spray the model xf-62 olive drab.
Step 3: using the panel fade technique spray a 50/50 mix of xf-62 olive drab and xf-60 dark yellow.
Step 4: again using the panel fade technique spray a 25/75 mix of xf-62 olive drab and xf-60 dark yellow.
Step 5: once step 4 is dry apply a thin magic wash over the whole model.

At this point you have done all the basic body work for the vehicle. In my next post ill talk about detailing the model , dirt, dust and paint chipping ect..
