Ok so I've started to repaint my Don Post 96 Helmet and have been using mostly Steve the Swede's awesome tutorial for reference. I painted the dome and cheeks with Model Masters Panzer Olive Grun as per the tutorial and I think it looks too dark. I should say that this paint is enamel instead of the acrylic he used but don't know if thats the reason or not. Also I did not prime the helmet white prior to adding the paint because I wanted to try a layering technique I've since given up. I am a fan of the not so much "spucey green", but a little more towards that direction. <--- See my avatar of the original helmet for what I want. The panzer olive just looks funky on my helmet. Does anyone know why this paint looks dark?
Any and every paint sceme help would be welcome. Thanks for helping a newbie.
