Thanks all One question is it worthwhile doing a number on the rear of the turret ?
Panther and tiger1 yes but not found a king tiger rear no photo.

Yes, there were KTs with numbers on the rear turret, very unit specific though.
I will get a photo for you, but I feel your particular one represents a unit that would not have done it.

Numbers look excellent, the painted on look has always seemed better to me than decals IMHO.... I paint them on when I can. Brilliant work :thumbup:

Another little upgrade ,the periscopes . The loaders one needs some work paint the rear of the perspex and fill the gap under the guard. Better have look at some walkarounds or photos. Thats 2 sets of scopes sorted another 3 to do when i am in the mood to do more fixes..
