Response to Re: Photo by Manus

Hi Manus
Thank you for your excellent explanation.

I was not fully aware that the Germans coated/ painted the hulls in blue/grey before the Red oxide. This may explain all the photos we see of tank hulls in blue/grey paint awaiting assembly.

Not having a metalmanufacturing background I presume the Blue grey is some sort of initial first coat to seal the metal and prevent rusting. The Red oxide is then applied and being softer paint allows the camo paint to bond/bite into it thus giving a harder wearing paint finish.

A bit like painting wooden doors etc - seal, prime then paint.

Thanks again
