What would be the correct colors for the camo. I usualy use model master paint i was also wondering about acrylic verses enamel when masking over for camo. This will ne my first attempt painting a camo scheme so any tips or links will help. Its the old Monogram Vietnam Spooky kit in 1/48 really nice kit.

US standard Vietnam camouflage was FS Colours 30219/34102/34079 over 36622 although Spooky often had black undersides instead of light grey. Model Master has direct equivalents for all of these colours in both enamel and acryllic.

Whether you use enamels or acryllics is up to personal choice. The paints will perform well either way.
