Tamiya Humvee Paintwork

A pleasant session at the bench today spraying the NATO camo scheme on the humvee. One thing I have noticed is that the latest batch of tamiya NATO green is a lot darker in colour than my previous older stocks, (which I used up on the leo build). However with a few good dollops of flat flesh I got a shade I was happy with. 

Whilst on the subject of spraying I've discovered that Aztek colour cups will actually fit my Iwata TR2. I have been looking at getting some different sized cups for some time but the cost of Iwata items is very expensive, at least £30 per cup. So these plastic Aztek ones are a real bargain at £8! The fit is snug but then you don't want them slipping and tilting while spraying.
