African Harvard for Hire (WIP)
« on: July 22, 2019, 09:06:41 pm »
Evening (PST) Gents!

Finally back in the game, and this time not a pixel art piece!

Working on a backstory for this little (1/144) piece.





Inspired by the SAAF scheme for their Mirage F.1's I used a RAF Harvard camouflage pattern, but with different colors, and felt the need for it have some green in it similar to WW2 Italian and Luftwaffe desert schemes.

Skol!

Can I suggest that you "shrink" your images?  You can do that by including in the first [img tag the words "width=800" before the closing bracket "]",  it would make looking at the images on screen much easier.

Apart from that, most interesting.   :thumbsup:

Congratulations for the camo! Not easy to paint, but very efficient not to be seen in African nature, I think.
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]
