  3. Great real stuff. I'm sure it was tidied upbefore the Normandy landings?...

  4. The funny thing is you will find an aircraft model maker that replicates this scheme. I have many military model magazines and they look for quirky examples to replicate in a model, they will also copy the bad paint job. The result is a very ugly looking model. I even had a magazine where a whole article was dedicated to someone modelling the rusted out hulk of a tank used as target practice on a firing range. The result was an orange rusty blob and did not even look like a tank. Purists :)
