Hi Guys

My presnt project is of a Pz35t used in 1941

I would like to know if anyone can help with the following two questions?

1) What colour glass was used in the episcopes?

2) I have a photograph of the mud scrapers but would be grateful for any sketches or line drawings or user manual pictures etc.

I have to confess to starting this project as an OOTB build but I'm afraid my usual instict has kicked in and the modifications / additions to the kit are multiplying as time goes on.

So any help will be most appreciated and I thank any response in advance.

Hi Bill,

I cant add anything to that photo of the mud scrapper posted on ML but will look in the 35T book from Speilberger which has some plans.

The colour of the episcopes is clear glass, what colour you paint them is what colour you believe is reflected from within i.e. hatch open or not, body in hatch or not. The fashion of painting optics coke bottle green is not real.
