The Tiger was feared so much by the Allies, that most German tanks were referred to as Tiger tanks. Tiger I is the common name of a German heavy tank used in World War II, developed in 1942. The final official German designation was Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. E, often shortened to Tiger.
Having given the Tiger a basecoat of Humbrol Dark Brown initially, I was not happy with the results.
After looking at some models online and discussions with Simon, decided that this was way too dark.
I bought some FoW Warpaint, for Late War German Armour and used that on the model.
Much happier with the result.
Here is the Tiger next to one my the Panthers.
