Gents, >>

Been a super busy quarter, I hope to have some updates coming out soon. Furthermore, I picked up a bottle of this stuff maybe a year ago, direct from MIG, found it was cheaper to ship it to Canada from Europe instead of the U.S, like 20$ cheaper… So, I cracked it open about a month ago, and was shocked at how green it was, I understand the pallet, for I specialize in German WW2, but it states BLUE wash for Panzer Grey. Take a look for yourselves.

On the other hand the wash itself is a little thick from the bottle; it really needs to be thinned before it will freely flow within the nooks and crannies of one’s model.

Now I am really curious if anyone else has this product and if so can you tell me how green and or blue it is? I really don't think it sits well with MIG's Dunklegrau 7021...This is after filters and some "soft" weathering, note the green tinge on rivets, next is grime and pigments...

Hi Lewis.

I agree with the blue for grey. I use Paynes Grey for my washes. Try it on a test piece or on the bottom for a look see. I always use the bottom of the vehicle as a test first area to prevent disasters.

Ron,

Thanks for the advice, I’ve had my eyes on a tube of it for a while now, reminds me very much of Abteilung 502’s Copper Oxide Blue (ABT180) , only it’s a patina , and I’ve yet to try it out yet. Anyone here familiar with using patinas?

Cheers

Lewis
