    armor repaints

    Post  Guest on Mon Dec 07, 2009 6:12 am

    I had two tank models I was building and I didn't like how they were turning out so I did a repaint on them. The first three pictures are before and the last four pictures are the after...















    Please realize that aircraft are what I prefer and that I dabble in armor and everything else from time to time...

    The three tone pattern was a common scheme on German tanks during the mid to latter parts of the war. The tanks came out of the production line on overall yellow and he camo was quite often done by the crew at the front. At the end of the war the tanks came out a medium to dark gray because the paint supply was limited by allied bombing and conquests. I did the E-10 tank (on the left) in the three tone because I felt if the Germans actually fielded that tank the war would have been going better for them.

    The E-10 has a very sleek and low profile design. Had it been used in large numbers........... who knows!?

    Since the E-10 is a paper panzer, I've seen this in many artistic camo. designs and all are interesting.

    However, as for the Stug, the colour looks Turquoise, but this could be how the colours turned out in the picture.

    Still, airbrush work is very good!
