  2. For the record, if you are applying ochre and iron color to look like metal, or mud that matches the ground color, ok. But if it is a German tank, you probably want to avoid anything that looks like rust - rust on tank treads was a court marshal offense.

    1. Are you serious? Rust on tracks was a court martial... now i know they had some draconian discipline but I never heard of that in 50 years of WW2 books...now I know a guy on Greatest Tank battles said, they were not allowed to get out of a knocked out Panther tank in battle - unless it was ON FIRE. Only then could you get out of the tank. My guess would be the crew was expected to provide whatever covering fire they could while in the tank, thus the regulation? But that was the rule - in that guy's unit anyway.
