    Armor painted, loving how its turning out, sort of mimic'd HIcks, but wanted my own pattern and I am just not a good enough painter to replicate.

    Will be doing the weathering like Nick, and have stencils coming from Mike for my name, and I will be sticking my rank on with a stencil as well. Also plan to so the Spat mod to the shoulder bells so it has elastic sraps in rear.

    Got some helmet goodies, name stencil from a fine gentleman over at AL, and a nice real nikkon camera lense for my helmet cam, finishing up some weathering, and working on the plate pads and helmet will be done soon!

    Sure, I used Tamiya XF-51 Khaki Drab and XF-7 Flat Red. I added 3.5ml of XF-7 (flat red) measured with a syringe to 10 ml bottle of XF-51.

    There are high res pep's floating around somewhere that you can use to make a fine set of glass USCM armor.
