In this book Javier Redondo shows, through a series of thorough step-by-step guides, how to paint and weather a simple US Olive Drab camouflage or the more unusual tritonal camouflage patterns used by the US Army. Through a variety of armoured and softskin vehicles, all subject to very different weather conditions, the book shows a great variety of both painting and weathering techniques.
To showcase the author’s work, the book outlines different techniques and provides information about the colors and the techniques used in an accessible and visual format. In addition, at the end of each article there is a color chart which helps to clearly identify the colors and products used.
At the end of the book there is a section of profiles to provide even more options when painting US Army vehicles and a gallery of other pieces made by the author.
The book is a complete and fascinating guide, not only for lovers of the US Army vehicles in World War II, but also for any modeler who wants to learn how to reproduce painting and weathering effects with acrylics.
