I find this scheme interesting because according to " The A7V
Tank" by Hundleby & Strasheim, their were two Medium As tested on
proving ground of BAKP 20. They were deemed the only British Tank
worth copying,but they were not put to use in the ATDs.
Therefore this scheme must be of one of those two, one of which is
pictured in the book and appears to be overall field grey.

I definately remember reading some place that these were available.
Who makes those injection moulded Panther tracks? Is it the same

I just special ordered one at my local hobby shop and am looking
forward to getting it. It sounds pretty good.
Now just to hold out for a Renault,St. Chamond, and a Schneider.
