Hi. I didn't get it clear. Can I represent the Erbsenmuster ("pea dot pattern") pattern with this set?

No. Reading the review it looks as though it is intended for the SS smocks only. To be honest I'm not a fan of pre-mixed colours for this type of application, I tend to mix my own, particularly since I still use Humbrol. Slight variations in colour between figures don't matter, and actually look more realistic IMHO.

I agree completely though I am willing to give a set or two a chance and judge the results based on that and not on how I always did it before. Who knows? It might be the easiest way to do this without having to make up custom batches of specific colours.
