Excelent paint job. I must learn that Modulation Color. In my opinion last camouflage is most curious.

Wonderful paint job, just wonderful!

For the camo options, I'd go for #434.

Sergiusz. I hear you. Sorry if I bother you. I thought your StuG was so good, so accurate, I think it'd be too bad for you to build a "sci-fi" Panther.
To be quite honest, I'm afraid this is what you'll get with I02. Plus it has to be a command tank which means modifying the kit.
Anyway if you're looking for a camo with large patches, I take it the kit offers the "232" and it'd match your kit (more or less) without you having to modify too many things. Of course if you want there's some work on the bench as this "232" had some distinctive characteristics but at least you'd have a historically correct model, if not 100% accurate. The other three tanks definitely are Kursk (or a bit later) Panthers so not zimmerited.
This profile of "232" is rather accurate (minus the MG mount which is nowhere to be seen on pics).


Here the real one :


Just for the fun of it this is how trojca sees I02 :


Funny as it is supposed to be the same tank as the one you posted ...
One can't help but think of the reliability of these profiles.

We also have good old "219" as seen in Normandy, i think from H.J. June 44 with a three tone camo :


Or this one from Das Reich seen in June 44 in France.

as it is seen in spring 44 it is supposed to have a regular three tone camo too but it's barely visible on this picture ...

Last one, this one from s. Panzerjäger Abt 654 as seen in France early 44.


As seen on "232" you still can hide the smoke grenade launchers under helmets ...

Thanks a lot! I know this photos of the 232 vehicle and I must say that DML made this model totally wrong and SF as a representation of this specific vehicle. The Zimmerit pattern is pressed out in different direction, the communication door and MG ring are present... I think I'll paint it like 232, will not use the numbers-just crosses and that's all...

Thanks for the help!
Sergiusz

Sergio,

Very nice tutorial of the CM style. You have already breathed so much life into the base paint scheme. Well done.

Thanks
Rick

This is the first I've seen up close of the zimmerit from Dragon and I must say, under paint it's pretty dang nice looking! Base coat is killer, look forward to seeing some other colors. Might have to consider trying one of these "zimmerited" kits.

Yeah, please do that and keep on doing this excellent work of yours. This is most interesting and educational. (is it a word ?). I wish I had your skills ...

Thanks again guys-here is small update:

WIP:

Next step was to paint all details with Vallejo paints and Talens retarder. For the first time I used my own technique for highlighting and altering the large surfaces. First I'm applying the retarder to the surface of the model then I'm applying the thinned Vallejo paint and start to blend it just like the oils. It's a little bit tricky with acrylics but drying time is shorter and the layer is resistant. Of course I'll use the oils for the next step but I decided to try something new in this style. This what you can see on the mantle, sides of the turret, highlights on the front plate and on the fenders, wheels, cleaning rod container, barrel are painted in this way to strengthen the airbrush work. Tomorrow I'll try to paint the green camo.











Best regards!
Sergiusz
