Though I love the photo's, they are no very easy to use for reference in painting. But there are color plates of the various camouflage schemes shown in the photos and discussed. These will come in very handy for the modeler.
I will be getting the other two volumes of this series.
A word though for those who might not be familiar with this series or type of book: they are NOT tech data sources on WWII German armor. You will NOT find data on ranges, weapons, armor thicknesses, engines or anything else of that ilk. The title says it all: Panzer Colors. This book covers how the stuff was painted, what colors were used, camouflage schemes and the like. Mostly black & white photos and a few pages of color renderings. It's designed to be a resource for model building & painting.
Panzer Color I provides a short review of the interiors, method of application, the use of foliage for all types of vehicles, wheeled and tracked from every theater in every season, urban and rural backgrounds.
Panzer Color II covers the markings of the German army panzer division. Panzer Color III focus is on the non Army units such as SS, Panzer grenadier divisions, Sturmgeschutz units.
Some of the photos have been released in other Squadron books, if you have any of the "In Action" books, you'll recognize a few of the pictures, but the emphasis on these captions are the markings, camouflage, tactical signs & colors rather than the weapons.
