Hi I'm looking for reference sites or books for crew camouflage for Panzer crews in Normandy June 1944. Specifically the green, brown, black, pea dot or other. I'm led to believe that the crews changed to this just prior to the D-Day landings, but I'm struggling to find out more about this, did this happen and if so what camouflage was it ?. I want to paint a crew for a Tiger I'm doing set in Normandy in this time period. Any help would be greatly appreciated :).

I've been looking for paints recently, as I wasn't happy with the Tamiya colours I had for uniforms. By chance, I came across this video review of a book on painting Panzer uniforms. I thought it might be of interest to you. :)
