Was out today at Barnes and Noble to pick up the new 'Classic Military Vehicle' and ran across this. Since I have a Tiger 1 kit to do and an eventual Tiger II redo, it seemed like a good idea. Excellent reference pics including some I had not run across yet.

Hey Painless, I saw a whole series of these at a local hobby show last week. Is this new ? I have never seen them before and was also tempted with this one which looks excellent.

Hey Painless,

Are there any good ref pics of both types of Tigers that the 507th sPzAbt were using?

Good Evening,
Michael, the photography is excellent and crisp. This is the first of this series that I had taken serious notice of due to the reasons I listed. It should read well. Derek!, Hallo! There are pictures of some of the heavy armor you are looking for in the later chapters but they are not noted as such. I saw them due to the tank and unit markings in the photos. They mention the General Rose incident briefly as it is WWII legend now.
regards,
Painless

P.S. I did find this online that might be useful: http://weaponsandwarfare.com/?p=2156

I've got that book as well. It has a few mistakes in it which are obvious so it makes me question a few of the other facts but it's nice for purely photo reference.

For instance it makes up the the term Ardennes Ambush scheme, which in fact is the generic hinterhalt scheme. It also makes up it's own names for colours.

Good Morning, Billpe,
Thanks for the heads up on the text, I'll keep an eye out for more. The photos will be the most use to me. ;o)
