Title: Panzerkampfwagen V Panther Sd.Kfz 171 camouflage patterns - Earl Grey collection
Post by: Earl Grey on 7 June 2009, 18:06:10
The following are collor profiles I've been collecting for years. They were taken from various sources and have either been found on the internet, donated by friends or scanned by myself which explains the variying quality.

Some notes beforehand:
- The most obvious mistake a lot of artist make is mistaking dusty road wheels to be painted in RAL7028 Dunkelgelb. Actual color of those road wheels depends on time of manufacture of the vehicle.
- I'll sort the profiles after units and have one post each for all respective vehicles. That way, I can always add new profiles should I find some.
- These patterns are historically accurate to a big degree (else they wouldn't be posted here). They can thus be used for modelling or wargaming purposes without second thoughts.

If you have any questions, fell free to ask!

Earl,

Are these pictures that you yourself have drawn? If not what reference source did you use? I've not seen some of these camo pattern before. It would be interesting to get the book.

Also, is the model one of yours? What scale is it?

Good Hunting.

MR

No, sadly not. I could do that, but I don't have the time for that given all the other projects I'm working on. I was planning on doing that one day, though.

I took these from a variety of books I own and found them on the internet or had them scanned by friends. Usually, these patterns are based on opriginal photographs which explains why we haven't seen some of them yet - more and more photographs are appearing from private collections because the people owning those have died or decided to share them with the rest of the world (WW2 collectors being a VERY odd lot most of the time). Either way I can give you a list of the books I have, although in most of them the photographs these profiles are based on aren't shown.

No again. I do model, but these are from other people from various sites out there; scale is 1/35.

I have some books with camo patterns I'm not seeing here as well. Need to crank up my scanner one of the days too.

It would be really interesting to see the photo scans you refer to.

I have hundreds of photos I took when I was in the US Army in the mid to late 70's of US equipment and one of these days I need to scan that all in as well.

Good Hunting.
