Started working on HG Kshatriya, not much to look at yet just got most of the kit primed today. Found every color i need execpt for the color to cover the light green in the kit. But not to important right now still have alot of painting to do without it. I would like to go with tamiya olive drab 2 but it would be easier to find Altantis.261426152616

I don't use an airbrush so i use rattle cans. I can't find hardly any tamiya lacquers anywhere. Testors just doesn't have the color green im looking for.

I've used one of the Rust-o-leum camouflage greens on my Zaku, the lighter one makes a good Zaku green that you might look into.

So i got most of him put together and painted just have to finish the binders and funnels. The olive drab, and the other green didn't come out matching as well as i would hope but for some reason it is growing on me.2646264726482649

It is tamiya ts-28 olive drabb two. It came out really nice. But it was a bitch to find. I also used testors gray primer and it gave it a darker tone.

So i was looking and really didn't the green i first use for the body so with a little sand paper i sand off the old and painted some deep green. I really think it came out a lot better.29122913
