Taking advantage of favorable weather (not too hot, got done before the winds kicked in) I got in some quality airbrush time. As part of it, I painted a spare M113 hull with three different OD paints.


Testors Model Master Enamel Olive Drab FS34087 is on both ends to provide a direct comparison against the two acrylic colors Vallejo's US Olive Drab surface primer and Testors' acrylic version of OD FS34087 (it doesn't call it that on the label, but it does so on the display rack.

As I found when I was going to repaint a model that I did 30+ years ago, the Model Master enamel is an exact match for the GroCo military surplus OD that I used on that model.

The enamel paints seem to have a deeper look than the acrylic paints. I like enamel paint better, but it is much harder to clean off brushes.
