    Testors Model Magic Panzer olive Grun 1943

    Does anyone have pics of their helmet painted with this new discovery of ESB main green yet? I'm curious to check out some photos of your helmets. If it's great, I might have to repaint, but I've never used an airbrush before either...

    For you guys that were using this paint in an airbrush, do you paint it on straight, or does it get watered down with water to spray?

    I just painted mine this afternoon with Panzer Green. It looks a little dark at this point, but after a light sand, it may take on the 'pepto' look.

    Any other suggestions for achieving this effect?

    Hint: don't mess with it be patient it lightens with the weathering.

    What type of weathering did you do with yours?

    Re: Testors Model Magic Panzer olive Grun 1943

    The "pepto" is a product of the flash against the Panzer Green. The green seems to lighten up a bit once you apply your silver/rust/other helmet colors and with a bit of handling. But I stress again, that the "pepto" effect is a product of bright lighting than it is of heavily manipulating the green via heavy sanding, ect...

    I refer you to this thread!

    What does making skirts have to do with weathering helmets?

    Or did I miss something?

    BTW, thanks for the tips, guys. I'll keep an eye out for the pepto look.
