Found out tonight that it is really hard to zimmermit while laugh at your one of favourite standup comedians.
Maybe not the best choice for the job, but damn, I was laughing my head off. lol!

Anyway I should have all the and some battle damage done this weekend. Just need to a quick mod to the springs and should be ready for paint.
If it warms up enough so I can get out to the garage. The wife has this silly rule about painting on the kitchen table. Rolling Eyes

This perspective begs the question "How could any one miss a turretless target the side of a barn door !" They should have painted ,Toter Mann laufend" on each and every one of these death traps Razz

This the second tank I've done and each time I always ask my self "What were you thinking?"
In the end I'm always glad I did it, but swear I'll never do it again. So I probably will do it again. Wink

It kinda looks like I through play-doh at it, but will look good once I get some paint on it.

Just waiting for some springs to stiffen up the suspension, then paint and installation of the electronics.

Finally got around to putting a base coat on the Elefant. Not to sure about the colour, it's kind of a greyish tan.

I'm kinda leaning towards this paint scheme, so it might work. What do you guys think?

It looks good, but if historical accuracy is a concern, I am not sure about the grey base coat, based on my Tiger I research.

The difficulty is that recent colour illistrations, while well done, don't seem to be carefully researc hed in some cases.

I believe the Porsche Ferdinands were made between March and Mat 1943, by this time the Tiger I's were leaving the factory in yellow. If the Ferdinand followed the same policy, yellow would have been the base. Since the Elefant conversion came later, it would have been well past the time when grey was used.

Of course I could be wrong with my speculation.

Then even if my conclusions are correct, sometimes it is fun to not let too much historical research limit creativity and or painting what we want.

Stince,
The base coat was still dark yellow, and dark green.
This is a Ferdinand, not an elefant. I used this scheme for my ferdinand conversion.

good luck. tom

Yes, I'm aware that is a Ferdinand. With the Elefant there only seems to be few different paint schemes and they've been done to death.
I want something a little different, so I'm doing what you could call semi-historic. Wink

Yes, a person should be able to paint their tank however they want.

It will look good in those colours,too.

I like the term "semi-historic", you could say that about my KT, "Anneleise". I did not miss the irony in that while I wrote about historic colours in my last post, "Anneleise" should have zimmerit, but doesn't; because I didn't feel like doing it Embarassed Wink Laughing

Maybe in the battle of the heavy weights, I should throw Anneleise into the fray in support of the Elefant Twisted Evil

An all super heavy battle would be great! Twisted Evil

Or we could try a few super heavies vs a bunch of light tanks (2:1 ratio?)

This upcoming Battleday, I'm all for trying out the impregnable front end of ANY tank destroyer, since they have the exact same limitations as any turret-less tank. Bring on the masking tape.

Have we even tried that before?

I think it will add an interesting dynamic to battles.
