Response to Some basic Tiger accuracy input needed...

 

Hi Steve, if it's the LAH early '43'you are after? Then grey was the overall hull colour from delivery of the units first Tigers at the very end of '42' till after fighting in the battles for Kharkov in Feb/Mar '43' with an obligatory white wash for the freezing conditions covering almost all of the vehicles excluding unit insignia and turret tactical numerals. Then after occupation of the city and subsequent training and deliveries of new vehicles, the existing Tigers gained 'Dunkelgeb' stripes over their original grey hides. Here is a thread from further down the page by Steve Ballantyne, where he exercises some photoshop magic on an excellent image of one of the above Tigers.
