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...
Thanks again for taking the time to read this, any and all comments are welcomed. If your interested in the build please check it out http://www.militarymodelling.com/forums/postings.asp?th=128041

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.

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?
