RAF North Africa 
I basecoated the aircraft this evening in my approximation of weathered RAF Dark Earth. This was a 50:50 wetbrush mixture of Foundry Rawhide Shade and Chestnut Shade, followed by a wash in GW Gryphon Sepia ink. I'm not sure it was worth it, as the end result looks almost identical to the finish on my Battle of Britain Hurricanes. I'm tempted to do a bit of drybrushing to lighten things up a bit but I'll try to resist the temptation and crack on with the Middle Stone camouflage.
