US CHECK POINT IN IRAQ MASTER BOX 1/35 BOX PACKAGE I think the paint guide on the back of the Master Box has a different number.

For Vallejo, I think we should choose 70868 Dark Green and 70976 Buff.

US CHECK POINT IN IRAQ MASTER BOX 1/35 PAINTINGI thought that black surfacers are easy to paint light and shadows, so I tried several times in the past, but personally I didn’t feel much effect.
