I built a Tiger 1/35 with 2 tone camo over MM dunkelgelb late war.It seems too bright and want to tone it,make darker with oil filter.Any suggestions for the oil color?Im thinking yellow ochre or naples yellow?Thanks.

I would go darker, brown dirt/dust color and dilute the oil with paint thinner, like a wash. This is oil over acrylic, right? Yellow over yellow doesn't sound right!

I agree with Nick, a brown filter would be best over the dunkelgelb. A tan filter would work also as an all over filter for 3 tone camo.

Can you upload a photo of the Tiger?
