How To Paint Soviet KLMK Camo Uniforms

Whilst I'm waiting for my Revell US infantry to turn up I've started looking at the Esci Russian Paras and painting them up as Soviet Naval Infantry.

The figures wear the KLMK camo smock, a green overall with sand coloured bitmap patterns over it to break it up. Browsing the internet for any tips on painting the uniforms I came across this useful entry on the excellent Cold War Hot Hot Hot blog that provides some interesting detail on the KLMK uniform plus suggestions on how to paint it, what colours to use and some nice painted VDV airborne troops. It certainly has given me food for thought as I was planning to 'dip' my figures but I'm now wondering whether to go down the traditional black undercoat route...
