TOPIC: DAK with the Doc

DAK with the Doc 10 Apr 2019 09:32 #1

I am thinking about a different type of campaign. It will be a build (really a paint and weather) along with Dr. John.

I am open to feedback on the subject matter, i.e. German grey, 3 tone camo, ambush, winter camo, Russian 4BO green, US OD (though dad did this topic a ways back), worn DAK finishes, or even early BEF finishes.

Not everyone has to build the same kit, or even the same scale (though you may want to), but we should all at least stay in the same genre.

Discussion? :soldier

Russian green really hasn't been covered, I'd be game for that. B)

I'd also be in on DAK.

Since this is basically a paint and weather, would a started build be eligible?

It doesn't matter to me, but I think the big cheese may want to chime in...

I'm really partial to DAK stuff, but whatever.

DAK is fine too, we will see if people have an interest in the idea, then we can narrow down the subject matter. The main point is to get people out of their comfort zone and try something new, with helping hands...

I'll go both ways... :kiss: :woohoo:

WIP should be allowed, this is about painting and finishing not starting. :soldier
I told you photobucket sucks...

I like the idea. How would this work in practice? We all pick a kit and build it basically on a schedule?

Oh yeah - and Russian green is still a bit of a mystery to me - is 4BO the WW2 color or the modern color?

4BO is WW2 Russian Green. The building part really doesn't matter. If we are doing 4BO then everyone should pick some Russian WWII piece. Preferably land-based as I would be able to offer much less guidance on air and sea vehicles.

If we are doing DAK, then we need to narrow down early or late, as the color(s) change(s)

I like it. I've got a couple DAK subjects and just picked up a kit for three color camouflage.
