I have completed my 2nd Tiger, along with some other Germany Armor.
I decided to make this Tiger Panzer Grey. I've heard many people say that there were no Panzer Grey Tigers. That they were all Dark Yellow. I like things to be historical but I'm not total bent on it. Its not like I was going to paint it...pink! I was going to paint it grey either way. Just because I've heard both sides of the coin I did a little digging myself.
What I found was that the first 4 Tigers went to the Schwere PzAbt 502, part of Army Group North attacking Leningrad in August 1942. These Tigers were Grey. I even found some crazy pictures.
So here is my Leningrad Tiger, StuG F/8's, and Panzer II's. Let me know what you think.
My little varnish cocktail is a bit too matt. made some of the darker lines disappear. I'll have to refine this for the next batch. I also refined my wash, and it works much better. Even painted the tank commanders this way as a prelude to painting infantry with this technique.
They symbol on the Panzer II's is from the 14th panzer division. The turrent looked kinda bare, and its hard to put numbers on a turret that small. I'm sure there was a light panzer company in that division, just don't know where they would have placed their unit symbol.
Next up, 1 Panzer IV f2, 3 Panzer J (late), and 5 T-34 obr 1942's.
Oh some might question the tires on my tanks. I know they should be black. But I tried painting them and they look like shit after. So I just leave them now.
