Masks are off, but I think my colours are off. The Dark Sea Grey doesn't look dark enough compared to the light Grey of the underside, and maybe the Olive Drab is a little to dark.

What do you guys think? Recommendations, colours you have used, ideas?

Remasked, mixed up a new batch of grey, and sprayed. Much happier now. I just want to do a little post shading on the olive drab and then it will be ready for a clear coat.

I used Tamiya Olive Drab, Ocean Grey & I think Royal Grey for the undersides. Yours looks about right now ;) .

I ended up using Tamiya Light Grey for underneath, Olive Drab and a mix of Ocean Gray 2 (RAF) and Dark Grey for the upper side. I mixed them until It looked how I expected.

Thanks for the feedback. Yours look great.

Thanks. The silver one is my Son's. It's Tamiya, mine is an ICM.

Just finished adding some post shading and a little feathering to the centres and edges of the camouflage. It needs a little rub down with some micro mesh, but I think it looks much better.
