The variation in film quality, the chromic qualities of photographic film of the period, and the reprinting of colour photographs can all result in distortions of the original colours. This is a painting and modelling guide for those who are working with scale models.

The Army Painter

The smaller size of the subjects creates its own optical illusion; if the actual scale paints were to be applied to a scale model, they would appear unusually dark in comparison to their appearance on a life-size vehicle. They have been lightened, in an attempt to create an authentic look of the original colour schemes on a much smaller scale model.

This document is the result of pouring over photographs, books, websites, and displayed vehicles, plus a lot of comparisons made between the almost numberless amount of variations on the colours that such sources provide. It is not intended to be the ultimate authority on the subject, but rather as an aid to those who may find themselves as mystified by the contradictory resources that are out there as the author was when this project had its genesis some years ago.

All the colour plates displayed therein are created by the author, using references to photographs, both colour and black and white, of vehicles in the field.

Hopefully it will help to lend some aid to your painting and modelling projects, and any errors are the authors own. Paintbrushes Vor! PART 1: The colours. As the war developed, these orders also began to cover the use of camouflage paint, trying to create some form of orthodoxy in the application of disruptive paint schemes.

The first order issued that covered the period of the war was initially issued in , replacing the three colour scheme that had been introduced during the period of the Weimar republic, and which remained in evidence even as late as the Spanish Civil War. The order stated that vehicles would receive an all-over coat of RAL Anthrazitgrau. This was then to be given a one-third coverage of RAL Signalbraun, with a soft contoured or blurred edge, applied by spraying.

Although there is some photographic evidence supporting the existence of this scheme during the early years of the war, it is still a matter of some debate as to how widely this two-colour scheme was employed.

The two colours, when seen in black and white, are of a very close shade and tone, and when partially masked by the inevitable dust and mud that covered the vehicles in the field are extremely hard to discern. Not all vehicles painted with this scheme adhered to the letter of the order, as there is also some evidence that the pattern was employed with a hard edge to the Signalbraun camouflage paint; obviously some vehicles were painted in the field, without the aid of spraying equipment.

There is little if any evidence showing the use of this paint scheme in the Polish campaign, and it seems that the two colour scheme was applied mainly by units operating in the west. It may also have been limited to combat vehicles such as tanks, tank destroyers, armoured cars and assault guns, as again there is little if any evidence to show its use on support or logistical vehicles.

The next issued order, order Nr. It sought to unify the colours of all vehicles in the field, replacing the two colour scheme with a single overall coat of RAL Schwarzgrau, also known as Panzergrau, which was to be applied at the factories before the vehicles were issued.

This colour became the standard colour of all Wehrmacht vehicles until early in However, whilst in the field of operations, local commanders and individual vehicle crews sought to camouflage their vehicles with the use of improvisation.

Vehicles were sometimes daubed with mud, and particularly on the Eastern front, use was made of captured stocks of the standard olive green paint used by the Red Army on its own vehicles. Also, stocks of paint could be had from depots that serviced the Luftwaffe, and in the Balkans campaigns stocks of paint could also be obtained from the Italians, as well as captured stocks from the British.

During the first winter campaign in the Soviet Union, there were attempts to supply vehicles with a white camouflage paint which was to be applied over the Panzergrau. This was also applied to vehicles that were serving in Norway and in Finland, and the winter camouflage was made official under order Nr.

However, on the Russian front, the supply system had become so overstretched that this unified winter paint scheme had become almost impossible to implement, and once again individual units and vehicles were left to improvise whilst in the field. There are accounts of vehicles being camouflaged with lime wash, with ordinary stocks of whitewash paint, and even with applications of chalk, or white sheets being laid on sections of some vehicles until they could finally receive the new camouflage paint at depots.

This rather haphazard method of vehicle camouflage persisted throughout The winter paint scheme was removed in the spring, to be replaced with the overall Panzergrau scheme, and once again the application of camouflage paint was left to the initiative of personnel at a local or individual level, using whatever stocks of paint came to hand. In , German troops were committed to the campaign in North Africa. This introduced a new battlefield environment, against which the standard RAL Schwarzgrau was a huge contrast.

Under order Heeresmitteilung , Nr. The order called for a soft edge pattern. Later, as the new paints became more readily available, most vehicles bore the all over RAL scheme. The RAL was applied as available, and some vehicles went without it for the duration of the African campaign. The RAL was applied as available, and some vehicles went without it for the duration of the African campaign. There were also examples of the camouflage scheme being applied with a hard edged pattern when spraying equipment was unavailable.

This scheme also saw use in Greece, Sicily, and the early stages of the Italian campaign. The next change to vehicle colour schemes also occurred in the African campaign. Order HM , Nr. RAL Gelbbraun became the new base colour, and it was to be given a disruptive pattern using RAL Sandgrau, using the tried and tested one-third coverage with a soft edge.

In addition to the paints supplied, a temporary water soluble paste was supplied for the purposes of painting on vehicle tarps. This scheme was also used in Crete. However, its use was sporadic, as the supply situation in North Africa deteriorated, and many vehicles retained the old colours. In February of , new orders were issued, primarily regarding vehicles serving in Europe. Orders HM , Nr. The new colour was RAL Dunkelgelb. This scheme began to filter in during the spring and summer of It created a non-uniform appearance to German vehicles in the field, as individual crews were left to paint their vehicles using their own initiative.

Spray equipment was not always used, so some vehicles sported hard edged patterns. Additionally, and most noticeably around the time of operation Zitadelle, the Kursk counteroffensive, some crews opted not to use the brown camouflage, as the yellow and green colours matched the summer landscape more accurately. Also, the soluble colours, intended to be diluted with petrol, were sometimes thinned with water instead, or were diluted with a higher ratio of thinner than was intended.

This led to a translucent, weaker appearance of the camouflage colours, and in some cases the camouflage effect was almost completely negated at a distance by the effects of the sun and dust. However, these three colours became the standard for the Wehrmacht until the autumn of Initially, vehicles that had been painted in RAL Schwarzgrau were only supplied with the camouflage colours, but they were usually given a new coat of RAL Dunkelgelb during their next stop at a supply or repair depot.

During this period, there were two more developments that would affect the appearance of German tanks, tank destroyers and assault guns; the application of spaced armour in the form of armoured skirts or schurtzen on the side of the hull and turret of a tank, and which was intended to defeat attacks by shaped-charge anti-tank weapons, and the application of zimmerit, a cement-like paste that was applied at the factory before the base coat of paint.

It was intended to counter the use of magnetic anti-tank mines which were starting to make a more widespread appearance in the field. Zimmerit was discontinued in the summer of , but schurtzen became a common feature of many German panzers until the end of the war. In October of , with the strain on logistics now becoming increasingly felt, attempts were made to simplify the paint schemes on German vehicles. The RAL Oxidrot primer paint, which had been applied to all vehicles beneath their base colour, replaced the RAL Schokoladenbraun, and became the base coat colour, with the RAL and RAL being applied as disruptive camouflage over the top.

In addition to this, the RAL Dunkelgelb paint changed in colour, becoming a lighter, and slightly greyer hue.

In light of the supply situation, it was also decided that when stocks of RAL were not available, the old RAL Schwarzgrau could be used as a substitute. However, at this stage of the war there is no evidence of this taking place. With RAL being used as a base coat colour, tanks that were still being produced in a base coat of RAL were given a new green shade as a disruptive camouflage colour.

This was the last official change to the colour scheme of German vehicles.

As the war drew to its conclusion, and with the supply chain in tatters, factories, depots, units, and individual crews were forced to make do with whatever was available. Many vehicles left the factory in their primer colour only, and were camouflaged with whatever stocks of paint were to hand.

By the end of the war, the surviving vehicles of the Wehrmacht bore a large array of colours, ranging from the plain to the extremely complex. The final colour of note to find its way into the palette of the Wehrmacht vehicles was the colour used to paint the interior surfaces of vehicles that were not open to the air. These colours were discontinued for this purpose in as part of an economy measure, and henceforth, vehicle interiors were left in their RAL primer.

It must also be noted that the interior colour was not used on the inward faces of vehicle hatches, as these opened outward. These surfaces were painted in the base colour of the vehicles exterior.
