Help: US Army Airborne Late War Green Uniform

Postby drjohnosterman » Sun Dec 17, 2017 1:56 am

I can't find a base color I'm happy with, I use vallejo almost exclusively when not airbrushing. So far I've tried US Dark Green, Uniform Green, Medium Olive, Camo Olive Green, Reflective Green and lots of different highlight colors, not satisfied with anything yet. I'm going for a green like that of the IDF soldier at the URL below. So far my results have been too green, not enough olive/yellow green like in the photos below. Any help is very, very appreciated!

Hi,

Try this recipe:

Shade: chocolate brown + USA uniform
Base: USA uniform
Highlight: USA uniform + golden yellow (or iraqi sand if you want a lighter highlights).

Regards!
