Brach are producing a resin 4.7cm Pak(t) auf Pz.Kpfw 35R (f) as seen on PMMS.
I am not normally an Axis tank modeller but this does look rather 'cute'. So, can someone put me out of my misery?. i don't have many sources for German/French AFVs. I can see that a hundred odd were produced. i get the impression that they were all used in France post D-Day. Is this correct?. If so, then a fairly conventional 'yellow' base with maybe green stripes, etc?.
Thanks in advance for any help.

is equally possible. These things first saw action in the east.

As for France, apparently some new numbers recently turned up in Russian archives:http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... a3995c90db
Please note these numbers are for 31 December 1943, and there were significant changes up to D-Day.

Hi Andrew,

Another option (I think it's more accurate...but more tricky): produced in 1941 they were painted in dark grey with, I think, the interior of the "original tank hull" in white (French) or perhaps in elfenbein (German Ivory) but in 1944 I'm pretty sure only the exterior was repainted in dark yellow.
I hope it's clear for you (english is not my language, only reminiscences of school in the 70s).

Cheers,
Patrice.

for something different you could place one of these on a Channel Island in the timeframe 1941-43

according to the book 'German Armour in the Channel Islands' some of these were sent to the Channel Islands in 1941, and by end of 1942 there were 9 on Guernsey, 10 on Jersey, and 1 on Alderney, also Sark had 2 until November 1943, the book also has a picture of one in an indistinct camo pattern which states the picture was taken on Guernsey. The unit they belonged to isn't mentioned other than to state they were independent of Panzer Abteilung 213 which was equipped with Char B1 tanks.

cheers
Neil

It was quite painful to the credit card though...heard really good things about Brach Models, so I'm looking forward to it.
