Matchbox Parachutistes Britanniques wearing P75 DPM Para Smocks et matching trousers. The picture indicates why camo patterns should not be painted under artificial light, ou without reference fotos of the actual pattern. This colour scheme looks right in the basement war room, where the figurines were painted, but it is all wrong when viewed in sunlight. The Dark Green base colour turned out Apple Green, et the Dark Brown camouflage splotches are barely noticable, because too much white has been added to highlight them. The overall effect est un peu trop verdâtre et not mottled enough pour représenter exactement le camouflage DPM britannique en miniature.
Another mistake is that the figurines have the whites of their eyes painted in, which would not be visible when viewed at the proper scale distance. As a result, ces parachutistes display an unrealistic 1000 yard stare. Facial details et eye sockets of 1/72 scale figurines are best accentuated by washing the face avec diluted Burnt Umber Acrylic. Les fusils d’assaut SLR britannique are painted incorrectly as well, they should be dark gray, not black, to account for the scale effect.
