I have never purchased a set of these figures and was wondering what colors they suggest you use for the uniform, helmet, etc...?

Airfix figures don't come with painting guides, the modeller has to do his own research :geek:
These are the colours I used :arrow:
Humbrol Acrylic 61 Matt Flesh / 234 Dark skin tone = skin tones
Vallejo Model Color 115 70988 Khaki = uniform
Vallejo Model Color 141 70921 English Uniform = uniform
Vallejo Model Color 93 70887 Brown Violet = uniform
Vallejo Model Color 103 70821 German Camouflage Beige = uniform
Vallejo Model Color 147 70871 Leather Brown = belts
Vallejo Model Color 166 70994 Dark Grey = valenki (boots)
Vallejo Model Color 169 70950 Black = boots
Humbrol Acrylic 60 Matt Scarlet = collar patches
Humbrol Acrylic 155 Matt Olive Drab = helmet
Humbrol Acrylic 186 Matt Brown / Vallejo Model Color 163 70868 Dark Seagreen = greatcoat
Humbrol Acrylic 9 Gloss Tan = Moisin Nagant 7.62mm M.1891/30 rifle stock
Vallejo Model Color 138 70940 Saddle Brown = PPSh-41 stock
Vallejo Model Color 179 70863 Gunmetal Grey = Moisin Nagant 7.62mm M.1891/30 rifle, PPSh-41 with clip magazine, helmet
