Hi Guys,

I was hoping someone might be able to help with the above request? I have looked a bit on google & pintrest but have only managed to find 4 or so photos & was hoping for some more, before I decide which / how to model mine.
Kind Regards & Stay Safe
Mike

Hi Phil,

Many thanks for the link I hadnít seen that site before, but it is 5225 in that link that I was leaning towards as my first instinct as that is one of the photos I do have, so the colour template is interesting!!

Cheers
Mike

I just finished the Bronco KV-85 in the Bronco group build. I don't know if that is the kit you have, but it's a really nice kit. And it has the 5225 decal.

Just a few period pics :

You can notice that the "5225" lettering on the real tanks is different from the one in the o5m6.de drawing ....

On a side note, #283 is in fact a prototype :

Hi Matt,

Many thanks for that link some interesting photos & reference material for sure!!

Hello Henri,

Those were some awesome photos thank you!! I am wondering if anyone has an idea on what looks to me to be a different colour / camouflage section on the front plate & possible bottom corner of turret?

Thanks
Mike

You're not the only one to wonder, as seen in the last two pages of this thread :

The photos show that tank 5225 and other ones of the line have a disruptive camouflage. What could it be? Dark brown and yellowish over green, as prewar tanks? Black over green?

Just use Google Chrome as your browser and it'll translate the page.
