you can judge for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9cDCI82PxA

Personally, I'd go for buff/tan colour. http://www.imcdb.org/images/099/100.jpg

Thanks for the replies guys!

Brews, that youtube link was a better quality than I had been looking through. I paused it at 3:23, over the shoulder of the German officer, they are deffo grey. Although that Image from the imcdb page you linked to is some sort of desert camo, its also an M48.

I might just give mine a coat of primer grey and see how it looks..............

I wonder if, although it says "battle of the bulge", they weren't from "Patton".

The still picture is definately from Patton rather than Battle of the Bulge.

Cheers

It was a great Christmas movie. I used to go out and buy Matchbox 1/76 tanks every time it came on, even though the western front wasn't my thing...
