The second volume of Panzer Aces Profiles has just been published, with more than 200 profiles regarding schemes used by German Armoured Vehicles from 1943 to April 1945.
This period saw the apex of armoured vehicles design, with the most highly evolved vehicles entering service. You will find all the necessary information required to paint all your modeling projects involving Panther, Tiger I and Tiger II.

New research and new knowledge has allowed to put together this second volume on this controversial and speculation-filled subject of camouflage. At the very least, we have an opportunity to correct some well-established by proving new pictorial interpretations.
Many details that we took for granted regarding camouflage schemes have been re-examined in the light of new information.

This book shows a Wide range of camouflages from May 1943 when the regulation H.M: 1943 Nr.181 was widespread, to more elaborated camouflage designed for blending with the local terrain or to disrupt the outline of the vehicle.
From imaginative schemes known as ambush, Hinterhalt or Ambrust, which attempted to create confusion between the lights and shadows that the forest produced, to the significant hodgepodge produced by the lack of raw material components.

What color appeared when zimmerit chipped off of a vehicle?
Antirust red would appear under chipped off area or leaving the original light gray layer of the antirust treatment of parquerizaton?
How is the process of degradation and weathering suffered by vehicles on the battlefield?
How is the sequencing of the progressive process from manufacturing to withdrawal from combat before being scrapped?

You will find the answer for all these questions in this book through more than 200 profiles that have been made starting with contemporary photographs, obtained from the publications included in the bibliography. If you are interested in the most popular German armored vehicles of WWII, you can not miss this book.

Available in separated editions in English, Spanish and French.
