RAF WWII Camo Collage

Hello everyone. This is my first post. No models to post yet, but working on them. This is a fabulous place and great resource. What I have done here is a bit unconventional, but I think relevant. I’ve been researching and learning about the RAF camo schemes from WWII, and was inspired to do this. It is on 12×12 canvas, and hand painted Hataka acrylic colors. It depicts the four main schemes of the RAF: Temperate Land Scheme (pre 41 and tropical) of Dark Green, Dark Earth, Sky (U); Temperate Land Scheme (post August 41) Dark Green, Ocean Grey, Medium Sea Grey (U); Desert Scheme Dark Earth, Middle Stone (in the place of Dark Green), Azure Blue (U), and the Sea Scheme Extra Dark Sea Grey, Dark Slate Grey, Sky (U). I thought it would be interesting to see the four schemes all together and see them flowing from one to the other. I would probably lighten the colors a bit next time. Hope you enjoy.

  1. Strangely, the sky in the upper left and lower right are the same color, but look completely different. I will take another photo in different light and post…

  2. Here it is in natural light. Looks a bit better
