    The white, black and red paint scheme was used on many Japanese aircraft mostly IJN aircraft.


  • ok so i am basically asking what colors i should paint my Zeros. Should i paint both colors?

  • '17 '16 '15 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    For aircraft, Japanese army is green, white is navy. Paint both probably 1/3 and 2/3 ratios for all air units


  • so 1/3 green 2/3 white gotcha thx for the help 😄

  • '17 '16 '15 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    yes by type


  • I will show a step by step guide to how i paint my Japanese infantry.

    1. Bring it out!
    2. Paint the body. (and in this case also the gun and bag)
    3. Paint the flesh, arms and face.
    4. Paint the black details. Shoes and rifle details.
    5. Paint the backpack and including details.
    6. Paint the bayonet
    7. Paint the collars.
    8. Varnish (not shown, i use a water based matt varnish)

    This fellow took me about 20 minutes to paint including taking the pictures. The time is less per unit if you paint more at a time.

    Enjoy!



  • The uniform and rifle i have chosen to copy.


  • Hey guys, about to paint my soviet tanks for spring 1942, just wondering if a snow patter/camo would be appropriate?

  • Yes i can.

    Russian Battleships Gangut Class

  • How i paint my Russian Infantry.

    I will. I only have a few paints so what I can paint I will paint. I will get some more paints the week after.


  • One thing what would you sagest to use for paints and paintbrushes. I have some GW paints and paintbrushes but they are so expensive. I have a Canadian Tire and Michaels in Halifax. Also do you have any good painting tips for me?

    Well i only use 2 kinds of brushes (they get worn out pretty fast so buy a few)


    Here are my brushes, 1 tiny and 1 flat also very tiny.


    My budget paints. I bought them for the flesh color, but the black, white, brown and ocra is also good to use.


    Humbrols from some modelplanes. Very good for plastic! (i have more colors of these, but the one in the picture is the ones i used most)


    I use a shotglass with water to clean my brush and to delute the paints. Some russian infantries in the making in the background.
    (yes the desk is dusty :()

    I have no good tips for you, find your own way. Dont do too much details, it takes forever. :S


  • Thanks


  • I love the painted pieces, very sharp!! I ve been playin A and A, classic that is, when all the molds were the the same lol, since I was a pre teen. My old man had his pieces painted for as long as I could remember. Nothing as accurate as yours, Swedo, but I have a huge appreciation for the time and efforts put into personallizing the game. I still play A and A every other Sunday with my old man and another buddy of ours. Not just classic as mentioned but all the others maps as well. We have newly painted pieces for the newer games, including heros for just about every country. I ll talk to my fellow gamers and see if we can get some pics on here for you to see. Once again great job on the painting man, I enjoyed them!!  🙂

    Thank you! It would be fun to see your pieces. Everyone is painting then differently and its always fun to see how other did.
    Is it easy to play with painted pieces? I dont have anyone to play with, so i cant test my pieces 😞 but i can take a picture of the bord setup with all the painted pieces on if you like.

    Yeah playing with the painted pieces is very easy! What a bummer that you put all this effort into painting your pieces and dont have anyone to test them with. I d love to see the board all set up with your pieces. If you wanna check out our pieces you can see a lot of pics at dicetruction.blogspot.ca

    Yes it is… my girlfriend promised to play with me when i finished painting (like if it will ever end). But she wont go full heart in at all… she is more intressted in counting the VC every 5 minute to ensure that i dont trick her to play longer then she has to 😕 I have not painted evrything yet, but i can set upp Germany and Japan 100%. USA 95% and UK/Russia little less. But i can show you.

    Btw i like the roundels on the infantry. I would like to do that too but its too much job 😞
