Hello!
I'm starting another figure, this time something modern



It's a US modern soldier from Live resin, quality and sculpting is superb. I will go for desert pattern camo, so any help with references will be useful.
Something like that:



Black primer and base color





Cheers!

Believe you mean UCP...

For more references you can try Googling UCP or ACU.
If you aren't comfortable painting it, CrossDelta make a fairly decent decal version.

Yes, it is UCP (Universal Camouflage Pattern) on an ACU (Army Combat Uniform) cut uniform.

UCP


Multi-Cam is the commercial version of the newer Army pattern called OCP (Operational Camouflage Pattern) ACU that is starting to be worn and will be the only authorized unifrom after 1 Oct 19. It looks similar to the old Woodland Pattern BDUs (Battle Dress Uniform).

OCP


Woodland BDUs

Thanks for the feedback, I want to paint it by myself, I'm not very comfortable with decals for figures. Have some experience with SS camos, but here will be different

Agree! Decals are good for Unit Patches, Name Tags, Rank Insignia, etc...

Thanks!

I use three flesh colors from Vallejo "Panzer aces set" №6...

341-Flesh base
342-Flesh highlight
343-Flesh shadows

...with these three you can mix many different tones and applying them in layers.

If you can find the video of Oliver Kovacz-"Painting 1/35 scale figure with acrylics", its a great source of techniques

Cheers!

Proceeding with camo, less is more, there will be more patches
The uniform is not so yellowish in reality (more like Beige), my fault with taking the pictures

Thank you!

I have to do some touch-ups, but the result I think is convincing
Paints are Vallejo Model Color (MC) and Panzer aces, all is mixed by the eye based on pictures, I'm not pretending of accuracy.



Close-ups maybe tomorrow

Regards!

Some progress, there's lot of small equipment parts, that need to be handled carefully

Added the other details, I've made the radio wire, hydration kit's pipe and microphone. Goggles glasses are painted with AMMO crystal smoke.

Some small corrections and that is for now, I like my first try with Multicam, and the figure is very detailed

Thank you!

Really enjoyed this, and surely will try another Live resin stuff, they're very nice.

Small correction-I've learned that Multicam is the commercial version and this is OCP or Scorpion W2, (correct me if I'm wrong-it's really confusing sometimes )

Yes, the actual US Army pattern is called OCP (Operational Camo Pattern). See my above post from 9 March 16 for a better explanation.
