Hi there .

After looking for info on some camo for my M.35 minenesushboot (boote?) , I have found one included in a Heller kit.




Problem is , It appears that it employs a 3-tone scheme (light grey , médium grey and dark gray9 or a 4-tome one (the 3 shades of light , mediun and dark gray) , a few splotches of White .

Or perharps it is a 4 color pattern , with 3 tones of grey and black??

Which one would be the correct one?

Are there any references out there for camo patterns for this class of ships??

Thankyou in advance .

The basic official scheme for the Minensuchboot would be the usual light grey sides and lighter grey upper-works (with a dark grey deck).
Most of the Camo patterns were, I think, local variations used to break up the light grey.
Google seems to show lots of plain (official) schemes and several variations on the one in your first link.

Yup , but that is not a M-35 type , more likely a M-40 or M-43…

One of these days I´ll have to upload a few pics of my camo'ed M-35…

And a few more of the rest too…
