Dear All,
I have become very interested in the Sexton, and waiting for the forthcoming Dragon kit. I have been collecting info for a future build of a camouflaged Sexton. At discussions on the Allied panel a picture has been posted showing a Polish Sexton with such camouflage (enclosed). There are a limited number of pics available showing such sextons where the principle details of the camouflage pattern can be seen. Does anybody know of any picture(s) showing these, especially front and rear, so that the actual camouflage pattern can be seen? Mr Zaloga mentioned earlier (april 23) ..as I've seen Polish Sextons with the same pattern.
I therefore wonder: Several publications, mostly polish, are histories about polish armour. I have none myself yet, but I ordered two books today at Jadar-hobby;
-Pegaz 03 - Polish Armoured Forces 1939-1945
-Pegaz 05 - SP Artillery in Polish Army 1940-1945
Are there any other specific reference(s) particularly useful in this respect? Other publications? Division histories? (I don't know which of the Polish units that had sextons) Home-pages? My polish language is non-existent but I have polish friends that can help.
Any help is much appreciated!
Best regards, and TIA

Hello

Sexton SP Guns have only two Polish units: 1-st Artillery Regt Motorizet. ( 1 Puk Artylerii Motorowej ) and the 7 - th Horse Artillery Regt, ( 7 Puk Artylerii Konnej ).

I recommend this book: Self Propelled Guns in the Polish Armed Forces, publications ZP

Dear Jacek,
Thank you for your help! I have ordered the book, it looks very promising on the JADAR page! I have bought the Pegaz-bis book about the "Artyleria samobiezna w Polsich Silach Zbrojnych 1940-1945" from Jadar earlier and it has already been of much help.
Now that the new Dragon kit is arriving, I guess we will see discussions about its pros and cons here on ML. I hope that Polish modellers will contribute, you seem to have museeum examples, photos and tech manuals in Poland! And photo examples of the camoflaged ones, the camouflage pattern I find very interesting, it seems to be standardized.
Thanks again for your help,
Best regards,
Tomas Enerdal
