Said this before, I will say it again.

Your book was great for this.

The shading on the white overalls. Subtle, it works…I will save these pictures. Simple…easy…nothing to it………few grey stripes basically?

No. Great, thanks

I am fortunate to have a couple of units painted by Rafa, and I can say that his work is even better "in the flesh". As usual, a stunning paint job!

Jeigheff – here is the book. I have a copy, some really great painting tips, well worth the money.

That's the one. I did prefer it to the sequel on British units, (another author I stress) but maybe that was because the second added little new and had some factual errors. Both well worth the expense though!

Let me show you the layout (as the sun is shining and ideal for a quick photo). Page after page of useful tips and then specific projects like this;
