A fine tipped airbrush is a great resource for Micro Armour® painting. Whether WWII Germans or British, or most modern armies, begin with a base coat of the lightest overall color. Apply stripes of the second color with the airbrush. Once all the hand painting is accomplished, use the airbrush to delicately "dust" for a most realistic look.
This BMP-3 uses the same exact sequence. The base color, however, is a pale greenish turquoise rather than tan. It is designed for northern service, rather than on the steppes.
