Band of Brothers Jagdpanther
Posted by Roald on Saturday, December 30, 2017 1:20 PM

Watching the Band of Brothers episode "Replacements" recently, I noticed the Jagdpather which attacks a column of British tanks. 

It appears to be painted in a light grey/whitish scheme. I've never seen this scheme on Jagdpathers before, and I assume it's a winter camoflage. I have the Tamiya Jagdpanther kit, and would like to replicate this scheme, but all the references I find are of the standard yellow/green/brown variety.

Does anyone what this grey/white scheme is?

There are a lot of screen captures of the BoB "Jagdpanther" on the net which show the vehicle in the standard three color camouflage of dark yellow, green, and brown. Some of those sites state that the vehicle was converted from the chassis of a T-55, so don't expect a high degree of historical accuracy in the details you'll find in those pictures.

I had to look this up, but that is not a grey/white scheme. It's the standard three color colors super faded and muted with dust and dirt.

I really had to look at that picture, but I'm confident it is not grey and white.

Replicating this look wouldn't be too hard. Just mute your colors and overspray with a dusty color. That should give you a good start for further weathering where the colors come out being faded just like in those pictures from the show.

If anyone else has a better opinion of this please correct me.

I agree, loks like a standard scheme to me. And i think Knight is correct, they used a converted T-55, big give away is the road wheels.

This is the image I was referencing.

Yes, I can see how it could be a very, very faded and dusty version of the standard camo. I think some of the confusion stems from the fact that the show itself is filmed (or edited) in a filtered, faded manner which bleaches out the images a little bit.

At first glance it looks like dark grey with white overspray.

It would not be fadd, just dusty. You would be surprised how quick an AFV can be covered by a layer of dust to the point where you almost can't see any camo.
