Tiger 1 (Early) References

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

 

Ive just got myself a Tiger 1 Tamiya kit (early) and would like to paint it in a panzer grey. 

 

Im a bit of perfectionist and i am very keen to ensure that i reproduce a example that represents one of the real vehicles.

 

I purchased a tankcraft book recently but this had very little for vehicles that were painted in grey.

 

When i find a tiger tank that was grey that has a indentification number on it, 113 for example, i struggle to find many photos of it.

 

Is there a database somewhere that houses all the info and photos per tank?

 

Or if you know where i can find a selection of grey early tigers to chose from i would love to see your comments.

 

I like knowing the history of each tank i paint. Thanks!

I think the German site Tiger im Focus is excellent place for what you are asking.  You have to be a member to view it, but it is free.

For a grey vehicle, there were only two units that qualify for this option, s.Pa.Abt.502 and s.Pz.Abt.503.

It would be a good idea to visit David Byrden's site to check his list of 'fixes' for any specific Tiger kit:
