    Hello Carius,

    Nice piece, It's nice to have some captured armour in our section.

    Ironically, 50% of the German Armoured forces strength, was made up of captured armour. For example, all the equipment the British left behind during the battle of Dunkirk, the French inventory after the capitulation of France, polish armour, and many others including soviet armour.

    Many thanks Paul.

    I love build captured armour. I have some books about this subject and I always look the site beutepanzer.ru, one of the best about captured AFV´s.

    Together with AFV´s were also captured a lot of ink. So, the colors of the German camouflage suffering many changes of tone.

    Cheers
