At first my idea about camouflage was straight another (here bottom on this page) http://modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=24682&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=1695 .
But I use bad colors ,green was IJN green - too dark for my need....next step was "decoloring" to basic aluminium color: http://modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=253&t=24682&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=1710 ......and then coming idea about "badly weathered mixer".... ;D ;D
