First camo colour complete

I carefully laid out a camouflage-pattern on the Puma using Silly putty. It's a tedious job, but since free-hand airbrushing is out of the question with my current airbrush, this is the only option. 
I've already used play-doh and modelling clay for masking, but silly putty is simply the best substance. It sticks in place very well, doesn't dry or shrink and is very easily removed without damaging the model or lifting the paint.

Ready for painting.
Painted in Panzer green 
Carefully lifting the silly putty
Looking good so far.

The result is what I'd hoped for. On to the next batch of putty, because we need a second camouflage color : chocolate brown.
