The first Tigers, issued to units on the Eastern Front, were painted gray. When s.Pz.Abt.501, the second unit to receive Tiger Is, began deploying to North Africa in November 1942, some were over-sprayed in olive green paint to match the more temperate climate of coastal Tunisia. The unit fought effectively against the Allies, before German forces were forced to surrender in May 1943. This Tiger I kit achieves the highest standards that Dagon has set for itself and, of course, the vehicle carries all the specific characteristics of a tank from sPz.Abt.501. And to ease assembly, the tank includes features such as convenient DS tracks. This is truly a masterpiece, with this big cat ready to prowl the terrain of Tunisia in its distinctive green coat!
