Saladin Mk.2 build – Part 3:Painting

1 Comment

Primer: Tamiya “Fine Surface Primer” (light grey) spray can

Base coat: The first coat was a mixture of 90% Tamiya XF-27 “Black Green” and 10% Tamiya X-22 Clear in Tamiya lacquer thinner (2:1 paint mixture to thinner). This was followed by a mixture of 90% Tamiya acrylics (Tamiya XF-27 “Black Green” and Tamiya XF-3 “Flat Yellow” in a 3:1 ratio) and 10% Tamiya X-22 Clear in Tamiya lacquer thinner (2:1 paint mixture to thinner). Thinking that this looked a little too dark still, I sprayed a mixture of 90% Tamiya acrylics (Tamiya XF-27 “Black Green” and Tamiya XF-3 “Flat Yellow” in a 4:1 ratio) and 10% Tamiya X-22 Clear in Tamiya lacquer thinner (2:1 paint mixture to thinner) over the upper hull and turret.
