Rowdy36 - If you check out the Australian War Memorial's Photographic Collection you'll find several pictures of M11/39s and M13/40s. http://www.awm.gov.au/search/all/

To me the vehicles with kangaroos painted on them definitely look green rather than sand (see refs 005042, 005044, 005046, 005047).

I guess the artists who drew them sand assumed if they were in the desert they would be sand.

Thank's for correcting me, Wizard, I knew it was an Italian tank, but they do all have a tendency to look similar.

The colours are largely guesswork, but the camouflage pattern is not.

The Lynx was the first operational armoured vehicle in the Danish army. Originally they intended to buy 18, but a lack of funds saw the first order reduced to just three vehicles in ~1938. Another three was ordered in 1939 and finally the last 12 vehicles was ordered in 1940. The German invasion meant that only six vehicles were delivered. The rest was taken over by the Swedish. The Danish army was reimbursed via check.
When the Danish military was disbanded in 1943 the vehicles were taken over by German police units and saw service in Eastern Europe and Norway. Their fate is unknown.

Armament consisted of one 20mm Madsen machine cannon and three 8mm Madsen machine guns, one at each end and one coaxially in the turret.
Crew was six, Commander, turret gunner, front driver, front gunner, rear driver and rear gunner.

Nope, that's the Swedish M/40 which while based on the same vehicle is actually quite different.
Armament, suspension and drivetrain was different.

Very interesting! I never knew about this vehicle.
Btw. personally I'd outline doors/hatches in black, but that's just an opinion.
