Blitzkrieg Miniatures 1:48th Panzer II & Panzer III
Awaiting the arrival of some Perry metal tank commanders, but the resin Panzer II and Panzer III from Blitzkrieg Miniatures are done. I dry-brushed on Vallejo Iraqi Sand over a base coat of Vallejo Green Brown. According to the DAK paint set the Green Brown was used up to 1942, but looked too dark, so I went over it with Iraqi Sand - which the set indicates was used in 1943. A sepia-tone wash mixed with Future/Pledge floor wax was applied and then sprayed with matte.
These tanks are supposed to belong to the 15th Panzer Division which used single numerals to identify vehicles. The decal sheet I got from Warlord had the famous DAK palm trees, but didn't have the symbol for this division. Might add them later if I ever pick some up.
I think the Panzer IV is around 1:48th scale too - appears to be close, in any case.
