I'm gearing up to paint some 15mm US Paras for 44/45 NW Europe and want to make sure I get the colours right. What would you recommend for para uniforms (both the uniform itself and the kit) in either Vallejo, GW, or craft paints (as that's what's available locally)?

Thanks in advance!

I guess it all depends on whether you're interested in doing the D Day uniform or the one used by most of the airborne from Market Garden onwards

this might help as a starting point
