Copy that. The I 11 turret number means that the tank is part of the 1st battalion staff of the panzer regiment. The R prefix is regimental staff, and II prefix is 2nd battalion staff.

Thank you. Always learning. It’s been a long time and I’m excited to complete an introductory armor build. Doing this the right way, if possible, thanks to your help. Cheers.

I used Tamiya German Grey with a few drops of white. The German Grey was too dark for my liking. Experiment with it a bit until you find the shade you're looking for. Take a look at my Progress thread.

Good advice. For early war German grey I use straight Tamiya German grey for a base coat then add Tamiya light grey to it and hit the upper surfaces lightly. The higher up or more exposed they are the more light grey mix they get hit with.

Panzer Gray was very dark. Even taking scale effect and age fading into consideration, it’s still gonna be pretty dark. What’s gonna lighten it is dust and similar weathering effects.

Good job Brice! You’re improving this one quite well.

Well done!
