The lighter green painted. I used Floquil's Germen lt. green RLM 83. Close enough. Working with what I have. The dark green is next. For that I mixed Testors OD green with flat black to get a darker green. One was to make OD green is to mix yellow with black, so mixing a little more black makes a dark green. Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

That is a most interesting way to mask, brilliant idea Gary! I typically use Silly Putty for this kind of work. This is gonna look fabulous!

I had to mix in a little IJN green to get a better color. The darker green is on the lt. The color before remixing it looked like a dark OD. After posting it looks more of a gray color. Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

When it came time to do the panel lines, I decided to do something I haven't done in a long time. Instead of a dark sludge wash, I used a pencil. After drawing in the line I erased most of to make the effect very subtle. Hope it shows up in the pictures. Gary S. XXXXV XX XX

That is excellent! I know a guy who also uses pencil on all his 1/72 scale panel lines. Easiest panel lining ever! He uses a .02 lead in a mechanical pencil.
