    To amplify a little more. The early production King Tiger ( please note that the reference to this tank having a Porsche designed turret is incorrect as this turret was in fact designed and built by Krupp. The model I built is not related to any particular unit however it is noteworthy that the some early King Tigers soldered on till the end of the War that is practically over a year since being built. One year for a tank is a very long time especially a German one. Early production King Tigers served in France (Normandy etc..), Belgium ( Battle of the Bulge), Holland (Arnhem), Germany and Hungary to name a few countries.
    Typical finishes for the early King Tigers were Dark Yellow (my choice), Dark Yellow with Red Brown, Dark Yellow with Olive Green, Dark Yellow with Red Brown and Olive Green and also Dark Yellow with whitewash.

    If you havy questions please ask.

    Cheers
