I'm a UK based modeller, specialising in German and Commonwealth armour. I have worked on a commission basis for enthusiasts all over the world, created masters for one of the big 1/32 resin "ready made" model companies, and have recently helped out on some projects for Archer Fine Transfers and other 1/35 armour accessory companies. I build for myself - when I have time! - concentrating on Stugs, Pz IV's and UK and Commonwealth WW2 stuff. I also post my work on www.track-link.com, www.missing-lynx.com and www.warwheels.net. Please leave comments or questions on the blog or on any of the websites I post on. If you would like to contact me, just click on "view my complete profile" below for my email address.

Panther G - Disc Pattern Camouflage

Panther G - Disc Pattern Camouflage

It used to be an extremely difficult task to replicate the late war "disc" pattern camouflage on Panthers and Jagdpanzer IV's. No longer. A simple stencil mask by German firm "Uschi van der Rosten (I kid you not!) is applied to the areas to be affected by the stencil, and voila! Job jobbed. Very much like the real thing where large rubberised sheets were applied to the three-colour sprayed paint job to complete the unique "ambush" style scheme. Here's some images of a commissioned Panther G using the stencils:

I used the same stencils for my Jagdpanzer IV/70(V) so they are pretty economical. I reckon you can get 2-3 uses out of the same stencils, which means around 8-10 per pack. Bargain!
