Grunt - Colour Theory

I'll be treating the suit as if it were the vertical fuselage of a german plane ... the rear will be RLM 76, the front will be a soft edge 74/75 pattern. There may be a little mottling along the sides to blend it all together. May also go for RLM 21 ID bands ... but not sure yet.

Markings are inspired by this very standard aircraft ...

Grunt - 1/20 Nitto Gustav

Needed a break from working on a Nitto Krote (longest build of my model making life - and still a ways to go ) ... so I built this Gustav in just over a day because I really wanted to paint something. Built largely stock for speed (swapped out the arm joints for solder and putty, sculpted over the kit's leg joints, replaced the laser barrel with a Wave option part, fixed the crappy Nitto hand, added some weld beads and modified the hips so I can pull the legs out to paint separately), the interior and seat were painted prior to construction. The idea is for this suit to represent a regular ground slogger ... an SDR Grunt, so I'm going with a fairly 'low key' marking combination over a RLM 74/75/76 camo scheme.
