    OK, because of what Sturmtiger said in his "I can't find my tools around the house" topic, here's a nice I-dare-you.

    Who dares to buy a German heavy tank kit, paint it pink and post it on the forum? :grin:

    Yeah - go for it!
    Pink Panther!
    you could paint his face on the glacis, and we could all hum the theme tune...
    (getting carried away now :grin: )

    I have a friend who once did a 'Mr Blobby' Panavia Tornado (Pink with Yellow polka-dots)...

    OK. I´ll pick up the glove as well. I´ll leave the Pink Panther to PanzerProfile though, as I have something completely different in mind. :grin:

    Now, if I can just blend the right shade of pink ( I´m thinking ´80s pastel here ).

    I see you've done the image search on the internet as well!! I found exactly thesame pictures! nice. A real pink 'Panther' should be added to the collection, don't you think?

    The Kenosha Military Museum in Wisconsin has several pink vehicles.An M7,M37,M3 Stewart and a Canadian Sexton.They are a faded pink.They don't look outrageuos at all.

    yeah well it's just the point that you have to make your pics somewhat smaller. You can do that with practically every photo editing programme or picture viewing programme.

    Under 150Kb. That means most pictures have to be quartered in size and halved in detail... :(
