First Look

Artool produces a series of paint templates including these airbrush masks that have a wide variety of uses for creating textures and other special effects for artists. As a modeler, I instantly saw their application to our hobby - camouflage.

Artool FX Texture

This set provides some interesting patterns which could be used to create various multi-color camouflage patterns on scale aircraft and vehicles. Use specific corners or sections of any given pattern to create a series of color overlays that can replicate digital or special forces patters on figure uniforms as well. You're only limited by your imagination!

My sincere thanks to Iwata-Medea for this review sample.
