    hey people. im pretty much ready to start painting on my custom guzzle from the wreckers comics. however i just cant quite find a decent paint match?

    he looks somewhere between brown and a dull green and since im now using an airbrush and liking the tamiya acrylic paints which one looks closest to his colour? but recommend other paints if those dont look a good match!

    any help would be appreciated! :D

    highlights on the top, base color in the middle, and shadow color on the bottom

    its a little "stylized" but *shrug*

    i'd say the browns kinda like a brownish/greenish/blueish tan color? lol. i dunno :p 

    hope it helps! i dont know paints real well but im sure you could mix some and get a close enough color!

    Guzzle rawks!
