Ersatz M10 Panzer Brigade 150 – Dragon 1/72nd Panther D and Cpl Overby conversion wip3

Base paint …..

Finally decided what latch details to add to the new turret hatch (no detailed pictures show the locking mechanism) and laid on a base coat of green, my version of Olivgrun 6003. Various US technical documents on the M10 conversions state the colour was US Olive Drab but I suspect that is rubbish, with neither the German supply system being able to husband and supply stocks of US paint but also GIs being unable to see the wood for the trees and viewing all greens as “Olive Drab”.  My view is that the conversions were most likely painted with the predominately available German green at the time, RAL6003.

Anyway enough detail, the base colour is mixed with GW acrylics and brushed as normal. I’ve started the lightening process with a basic highlighting and streaking, nothing too obvious yet, again just my standard painting process.

Also I’ve included a bonus pic of some other 20mm “stuff” that managed to fall under the rattlecan for priming …..
