Hi Andrey
I can only talk of my experience. I have no idea whether TWS or DML have made any changes for the better to either of their kits in regards to the Panzer II suspension.

BTW here is a great shot of a Panzer II in Afrika that was on E-bay today

Note to Stan : the two new Panzer Tracts will be issued by the end of September, one of them talking about ... you guessed right : Pz III Ausf D-E-F.
Do not hurry useful informations could be found there.

Thanks for all the info, much appreciated.
Very nice build James - way too advanced for me at this moment!

As always, there are options you can choose from but they don't tell you you which is which.
I have two different drive sprockets and three idlers.
If anyone knows which ones to use, let me know .

I am tempted to get Friul tracks. I did like a lot how you can sand them down with sand paper after painting. I will have to track down Blacken-It or something similar in the UK first though.

I will be building the 202nd Panzer Regiment 22nd Panzer Division, Stalingrad

Funny how various "artists" have various interpretation of B&W pics ...



I seem unable to find a pic of this bugger ... anyway, about your wheels :
#2 and #6 are seen on Pz II Ausf Fs.

After looking at reference photos I also vote for #2 and #6 parts... the others are there because of the shared sprues of different pz2 variants - I think.

I'm spoilt for choice! I'll go with the 'Dunkelgelb' as per Dragon instructions. I will be using Xtracrylics XA1809 'Sand Grey' not the XA1805 'Dunkelgelb'.
As explained in this article, the Hannants Sand Grey is a perfect match for Dunkelgelb, and the Dunkelgelb itself is wrong.

i've been having troubles for accurate Panzer Yellow myself. from one piece of information, according to samples form german armor in Kubinka tank museum, nearest tone is Humbrol 93. i myself have some doubts for it. so i've been seraching information about this topic. i read your article about Xtracrylicx - but could not find these from ebay. any information from where i can order this paint by mail ?

thank for reply and sorry for offtopic...

Xtracrylix are made by Hannants. They make enamel and acrylic equivalent which I use. They can be quite tricky to use. I would strongly recommend using their own thinner, and a drop of retarder (I use Vallejo), all mixed in the colour cup with a paint brush to achieve a good mix.
