Douglas Bader's Uniform, what colour paints to use...

Recommended Posts

...or any other BoB RAF Zob for that matter. I'm going to give my son (who's a much better figure painter than I am) the Douglas Bader figure from the Eduard Spitfire to paint but would like to know what colours are the best to replicate the RAF Uniform? He prefers using water based acrylics like Vallejo.

Merky Buckets in advance

Just seen this, and would add that the life vest could be anything from a bright yellow to a dull hemp/corn colour, all depending on year and what was in supply.

But as this is Bader (who occasionally wore a one piece Sidcot suit) a dull yellow would be a good shot.
