Some advance on the BRDM-2.




I had to shift the front seats back so that the figures could stand up through the hatches:

I am working now on the BRDM-2. I don't think I will go heavy on the interior detail because you can barely see the inside. Although I must say the Trumpeter model comes with a very complete interior. And I think I will do some add on armour as you see it ln a lot of Syrian armored vehicles. Just haven't decided what.

Hi David. It is not as complicated as it might seem. First look up a bunch of photo references. Search for "keffiyeh" in google pictures. Use a white base for the "keffiyeh" then playing with the folds on the figure do a pattern of dots (I usually go red or black). Always looking at your references. Avoid randomizing the dots because that will look unrealistic. And basically that is it. Good luck.

Wow. Great work on the UAZ. That kit had some major issues, IIRC when I built one.

First 2 figures finnished. With my desk lamp they look a bit too shinny, but here is the pic:

You are welcome Nacho. Here are some pictures with natural light of the finnished figure. Well, just have to add the AK74.

Wow, Marcos. Thank you very much for this tutorial. Now I'm working on a Woodland jacket and I'll use your ideas.

Thanks again for sharing your superb work.

Added a little wash with black oil very thinned.



Painted the gloves black then dry brushed them with black and a bit of white:



Body almost finnished:

Added some "spots" of oil paint. White, ocher, and yellow, to start the filter:


After blending, still wet:

Here I have done the green pattern and I am starting with the black:



Finnished with the black:



And this is where I am at at the moment. I think next I will give a couple of filters with oils to see if I can get a more "worn look" on the camo.

Next we start with the brown. I used Vallejo flat brown. Refer a lot to your picture references for the pattern. Just remember seam lines. The pattern is printed on the cloth and not on the finnished uniform, so make sure your pattern changes as you go over seam lines.



Also be careful when painting small areas like ammo pouches and so on to avoid doing a "miniature version" of the pattern. Again, keep checking your picture references.

Next, on the uniform and the webbing I applied a base color, going with the lighter color of the camo. I used vallejo dark sand with a touch of yellow green.



To this base I applied a wash of Vallejo sepia wash:



Then drybrushing with the base color with a touch of white:



This will give a basic effect of lights and shadows.

As promised I will do a little tutorial on the syrian camo with my next figure. So I will pick up where I left it:

I had previously painted the face, so I started with the T-shirt. First a base of Vallejo Military green. Then a wash with Citadel's Thraka green wash. And finally dry brushing with the base color (military green) and a touch of white. I covered the face and arms to work more easily the dry brush.
