19th PzDiv colour image

I came across this colour slide on ebay but was out bid


Unfortunately the colour is pretty washed out but there is enough detail visible to make out a 6th Kompanie vehicle

PzRgt 27 - supplement model

Finally managed to put some time aside to get the main paint job done; overall dark wash applied, some light chipping and basic details picked out. A bit of attention with some filters will break up the overall grey before weathering is added.



Some decals are on but I need to work out how to source or create the distinctive turret numbers of 6th Kompanie, PzRgt 27, as I have been unable to find anything that replicates the 6. I'm not confident enough to attempt a hand painted job so I have bought some DIY white decal paper. Some experimentation with that is next on the horizon.
