    From the 2009 Oregon IPMS show.
    Uncommon pattern for a Soviet tank.

    Captured German paint stocks maybe? I have heard of them being used.
    If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

      I must say, that is the first camouflaged T-34 that I can remember seeing. Very cleanly done.

          Very true. The Germans weren't. I'm not sure about Soviet camo colors.

            I'm not familiar with all the early versions, but I'm left with the impression this model is a command version.

              I think that two colour brown and green patterns were fairly common.

                It was a russian tritonal camo, effective in this unit.
                Dragon Armor made a die-cast model like this one.

                    I agree, I have seen b&w pics of three tone T-34s in the early war years. Not sure about the colours - but either way that is a respectable job.
