    I'm just getting back into modelling after a long hiatus. I have ordered the Acurate Miniatures B-25. I have seen them painted several colors, from a green drab to an Army brown. What colors would be most realistic?

    The tinge of these colours you have seen , could have been caused by a way of picture either scanning or taking. Not always colours in images look like these are in reality. So you might find them of the different tone.

    I would suggest using of these colours - Dark Olive Drab FS34087 over the Natural Grey FS36173.
