Hello !

Excellent work, my friend - I have a US WWI pilot from Series 77 (late 70s/early 80s) in a very similar uniform...the browns were difficult for me to reproduce - I followed the formula for that shade of brown drab in a very old issue of Military Modeling - long since lost - so I have no way of reproducing the color, my painter bud, the late Bob Knee, suggested a drop of "Liquin" - from W/N - added to the paint representing the leather gear would give a slight sheen...it worked out very well...your work is superb...BTW - what scale is this???

László thank you for clearing my mind of an image of Liam Neeson whenever I hear the name Michael Collins

Hello Everyone!
Thanks for your comments, and the kind words.

Mecanix.
I think you can pick one up at the IPMS Ireland Nationals.
You can find more information here.

For the uniform I'm using a mixture of Napoleonic Green(Andrea Color) and German Camouflage Medium Brown(Vallejo).
For the highlights I put some Ochre Yellow(Andrea Color) in the base color.
For the shadows I put some black in the base color.

Laci.
