1⁄35Panzer II C Polish Campaign
The build was completed using the Tamiya Pzkpfw II C Polish campaign kit #35299 and a turned brass KwK 30 2.0cm replacement barrel. The vehicle depicted is “R03” with the 35th PzRgt, 4th PzDiv in Warsaw, Poland, 1939. The vehicle was finished in the pre-1940 ordered two-tone scheme of 2/3 Dunkelgrau 1/3 Dunkelbraun. I used an 80/20 mix of Testors Model Master Panzer enamel Schwarzgrau/Light Gray for the base coat and MM enamel Panzer Schokoladenbraun for the camouflage pattern. Weathering was applied using a combination of an overall wash of enamel Raw Sienna followed by dot filters of enamel Flat Sea Blue, Flat White, and Italian Dark Brown. The tracks and hull were weathered using Mig Pigments Europe Dust. The kit supplied decals were weathered with heavy applications of Raw Sienna to simulate the common practice of crews smearing mud to tone down the prominent white markings.
