    I got a couple of new kits in the mail.A Polish 7TP with twin machinegun turrets and a Polish 7TP with a 37mm anti-tank gun.The kits have Polish and German markings.I'd prefer to do a Polish version for both.(Feel free to post Polish jokes in this thread.I'm Polish but love'em.The more offensive the better.)Back to business.Christian,can you recommend some interesting paint schemes?I'm not very familiar with this vehicle.

    Thanks

    While not an expert on the field, I would recommend reasding Steven Zaloga. One of his books, Campaign Series 107 - Poland 1939 - The birth of Blitzkrieg. Oxford : Osprey Publishing, 2002 is an overall good introduction to the subject, based on new research.

    You can also try http://www.achtungpanzer.com/pol.htm for some photographs.

    Hey Chirstian, I had one small but very off-topic question for you. Maybe you would like to enlighten me by answering this one?Maybe this has been asked before, but I'd jkust like to know.

    Why do all of your pictures as showed on your websites have your name written all over it? I mean: in my opinion this is really crapping up the pics. Couldn't you just have your name somewhere in a corner or below or above the actual vehicle? Cause, to be fair with you, I really love the pictures you have, but due to the names you've written in them I do not even considder relating to them. Or is that just exactly what you wanted?

    The reason is, that if I didn't mark them (or only marked them in the corner), they would be snatched up by wannabe webmasters and publishers (especially from Eastern Europe). I've seen this happen several times.

    The text is semi-transparent, so you can still see the detail.

    Right... yeah you do hava a point there. But it's still not really ok, you know. Too bad things like this need to be done to protect your collection.
