I am about to built a few King Tigers of s.SSPzAbt. 501 in 1/72 during their deployment to the Ardennes offensive and I am a bit confused regarding camouflage schemes, turret numbers, Zimmerit (or not) and so on.

And by the way - did King Tigers have a standard factory camouflage pattern from some point on?
