"Dunkelgelb" base coat now applied. (Otherwise known as Humbrol 94)

Camouflage-wise I'm thinking about Richard Freiherr Von Rosens' "300" from Panzer Abteilung 503 as the subject; or something close.

With that in mind I have a couple of questions for the experts.

The monochrome photos of his KT show the three colour pattern. The lightest tone, I think, must be the dunkelgelb. The mid and dark tones are not so easy to interpret. My initial thought is dark tone = green and medium tone = red-brown. Does anyone know for sure?

 

Also some of the KTs in photos I've seen of Pz. Abt. 503 have a rectangular plate/board on the side of the turret toward the rear with a semi-circle cut out at one end. It looks like these items might just be hung on the turrets rather than fixed. Anyone know what these were for?

 

Thanks in anticipation

Experimented by removing colour from a pic of my green/red-brown/dunkelgelb Panther. In the monochrome image the green shows up as the mid-tone so I'll go with that in interpreting Pz.Abt. 503 historic pics for the camouflage.

 

Unless anyone has a definitive answer from somewhere else.

Beginnings of some mud to conceal the gaps in the track links.

More to be done but a little progress at least.
