Not exactly what I would define as “Ambush Scheme”, far from it. This definition is the paint scheme equivalent of “Every German tank is a Tiger”. I can tell you where it can from however, the imagination of the restoration team at Kubinka.

As for its historical accuracy, it represents a brushed-on camo in standard 3-tone finish, it just looks rather garish with such sharp demarcation of the brush strokes. If it was a bit more subtle and showed actual, streaked brush strokes instead of bold slashes, it would appear more realistic. Looks like they just waxed and buffed it.

Screen grabs of its original appearance. Note the earlier drive sprockets not present on the restored vehicle.

A little more subtle finish too. :wink:

It reminds me of the camouflage pattern used on this Panther at Bovington…

Or, if that brushed effect is what you are really after, you could even just use a brush!
