About this detail of the Tiger
The colours listed in the kit's instructions, and shown in the illustrations, are only approximate. The true colours of these tanks are believed to be as follows:
RAL 8000 as the base colour, with RAL 7008 disruptive camouflage, and certain items of equipment painted entirely in RAL 8020.
The camouflage patterns are unfortunately almost impossible to see in B/W photographs, so the diagrams in the kit's instructions are speculative.
These photos show clean new Tigers of this battalion. The camouflage patterns are made visible by extreme enhancement.
