Very interesting figure from Bravo-6, Navy SEAL from Vietnam. It will be a small vignette with water and some vegetation.
There's review from Engin Kayral here:

It's time to start this fella, I opted for the Tiger stripes camo, it's very interesting and challenging in the same time

I look forward to the build. I appreciate you're looking to paint him in tiger stripes.

However he is wearing the style of clothing that would have been OG107 or ERDL camo. The cut of tiger stripes is different.

So it would be inaccurate to paint him in Tiger camo? Too bad, I really wanted to try that camouflage

Another variant I was thinking about, is combining Tiger stripe pants and ERDL shirt.

Chris, grab one, it's very nice!

Starting with the face as usual, this time I added Flat earth to the base color, for slightly swarthy skin.

Camo is almost ready, I painted without arms attached, because it will be very hard to reach some places with the brush.







Cheers!

Looking good. Might just be me but the black patches on the camp don't seem prominent enough. I can't tell if they need to be bigger or just have more of them (or it might just be the lighting.) Still beautifully painted regardless.

Thanks!

Yes, I know the picture, the camo looks very faded and dirty

I can enhance the dark patches and paint more of them, will check the references, maybe I painted them too thin. I've used Vallejo 70822 German camo black brown, because pure black will be too contrasting.

I'm preparing a small base with vegetation, but I wonder if bulrush is common for Vietnam?
Thanks in advance!

Typha orientalis, commonly known as bulrush, bullrush, cumbungi in Australia, or raupō in New Zealand, is a perennial herbaceous plant in the genus Typha. It can be found in Australia (all 6 states plus Northern Territory and Norfolk Island), New Zealand including the Chatham Islands and the Kermadec Islands), Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, China and the Russian Far East (Sakhalin and Primorye).
Typha orientalis is a wetland plant that grows on the edges of ponds, lakes and slow flowing rivers and streams.
