Nice progress R. To me on my monitor the color looks like it has too much red in it, and not enough green. Dunklegelb had a distinct green tint to it.

HTH.

It looks a little bit too brown. I agree with John....needs a touch of green.
Great looking Elephant.

Woooo,
Was not my intention to say your color was off. I think that dunklegelb had some different shades during its course. I think that also it could have been that "sand" shade. Is this not agreeable? I wait for opinions of you all.

Yep, Larry's correct.
Dojo, I wouldn't have stripped the paint off. It was only an opinion on color.....you should go with what you are happy with and as Larry has said these colors were thinned and mixed and covered a very wide spectrum when applied.
I thought that the color was a little Desert brown but that can still be a possibility. If you had wanted to green it up you could have either just remixed and spayed over the top or applied a very light yellow green filter by airbrush or pigment application.
I feel terrible that you have stipped it!

Well it's your model. If you are not happy with the paint then it is you choice if you want to change it. But yes there are always other ways beside stripping.

Hi DOJO:

My memory is slippin these days but if I remember right,after the cable end
was laced into the main cable a rawhide cover was placed over the laced
area of the cable to help keep the lacing tight.

A coating of latex rubber may have been applied to weatherize the rawhide
just not sure of that though.

....Mutt....

About the color. after many people pointed out that they are not sure about and that it might be wrong. Thought about it and realized that you might be right. Used the color not because thought it was right but because DML said it so. And looks like they are wrong and won't try to follow them again.
Any way thanks for your opinion about the color. Will try to repaint soon and will post the update.

After stripping of the paint and re washing some parts had broken off. Some of when was able to fix some not.

Ian, don't feel bad.

Petrey, THat's a good information. But still not sure who i'm going to do it.

Hi Dojo!
Nice Elefant you got there! Is that the kits barrel? I always got problems with them due the seam that shows when I glue by barrel together. Or is it just temporarely placed there? Hope the new basecoat is better then the last one!
Cheers!
Ebbe

Dojo the paint maby are maby not wrong. You could try to make it lighter and use the other as a base? I always makes a basecoat that is far from the right one but try to work with it. I guess I dont like fast lanes Anyway maby one bad paint can be ballanced up with some more work with it?
Cheers and happy modelling!
Ebbe
