About this detail of the Tiger
There were 20 Tigers in s.Pz.Abt.501 in Tunisia. They all bore a different tactical number on the turret, and they were renumbered twice. The decal sheet provided with the Rye Field kit carries many digits, enough to number most of these Tigers at most times in their life, but not all of them. The kit's instructions depict Tiger "141"; research into other Tigers is left to you.
These "Tunisian Tigers" were not all alike. On the hull roof there were two long towing cables. At first the cables were stored in clips with their ends to the rear of the tank. But after sending 7 Tigers to the 501 battalion, the factory substituted a thicker cable and moved all the clips, putting the cable ends at the front of the tank.
This Rye Field Model kit embodies the first layout of the cables (as shown here).
It would be difficult to build the other layout with this kit, because the cable clips are molded into the hull roof. You would have to cut them off and use the photo-etched versions provided in the kit.
These are the turret numbers of Tigers that are known to have cables matching the Rye Field Model kit;
111, 112, 122, 132, 141, 142, 231, 724
However, Tiger 231 cannot be built because it requires more decals than the kit provides. Tiger 724 used a font that is not on the kit's decal sheet. The list of Tigers that the kit can build is therefore reduced to six;
111, 112, 122, 132, 141, 142
