SdKfz 251 D in zimmerit

I'm starting a new project - 251 D in zimmerit. My friend ordered this model, so nothing can stop me ). All other projects are on hold to the end of this build.
Kits:
- Dragon 251 D
- Atak zimmerit
- Voyager resin wheeles ?
- Canvas ? (any ideas?)

Original vehicle can be seen on the photo below (any suggestions about camo colours - green or brown stripes?):





Guys, if you have another photos of 251 in Zimmerit please post them here.

Hey Andrey - interesting, unsual subject. As for camo colors, it looks to be the same as the Panther, perhaps there is a color plate somewhere? My guess is brown stripes.

Thanks for interest guys!
Marko, thanks for Royal Canvas sets, but i'm looking for canvas fully covering personnel compartment (time limits). Sadly i can't find any. Thinking of doing canvas by myself.

Hello,

Andrey - one remark - Atak set is dedicated to the AFV Club kit, which has wider upper hull, so canvas could not fit. RM sets are for the Tamiya kit - which is wider than DML too...

Btw, as far as I can see there is a some kind of step on the rear plate.

Regards,
Mateusz
