After asking in the Civil War Yahoo group about the colour I decided to make the first one olive green. For that I used the Revell Aqua nr 46. The black parts where painted with the Vallejo black nr 169. The rope got Vallejo nr 138 (saddle brown). After drying it got a black wash Vallejo lavado negro black shade). When that dryed I brushed the green parts lightly together with the black ones. Last I drybrushed with Vallejo sky grey 154.
