Hi, just starting to paint some GHQ armour and wondered if anyone could advise me on Vallejo references for modern German and Isreali?

Thanks in advance.

I know its a blasphemy but I base coat out of a spray can then use vallejo black and flat brown for the nato 3 tone..then dry brush very lightly with lt biege or Iraqi sand I mean very lightly then i give them a wash with Baldab black or brown to darken them up..for the IDF man i havent painted any since the 80s and vallejo wanst around then I think i used Floquill RR colors to get the grey tone desert cammo but I can't remember what i used…Mikey

Thanks, I spray basecoat my H7R WW2 stuff, fast and effective! Struggling to come up with a colour I am happy with for the latest Isreali equipment though.
