forgot they resprayed them both sandgrau for the Big cats display, I was never really impressed with the blue and yellow scheme on the Jagdtiger anyway.

For anyone thinking of doing any scale of Tiger I'd highly recommend the Haynes manual book that can be picked up pretty cheap from some discount outlets. Its about 131 in particular so excellent for early prod models of the Tiger 1 but it is very detailed in its level of information very useful for all production versions of the tank especially in relation to colour schemes & the research Bovvie did on 131 during its restoration & analysing the layers of paint that had been applied over the years. Its now in its original colour matched two tone DAK scheme
There is so much dirge on the web about 'correct' German colours that the paint section of the book alone is worth the £5 you can get a copy for.

@NSP,when you download all your Bovy Tiger pictures, Elephant and Jagtiger, you could edit the title of this to include all marks and variants.

Good stuff from Bovvy.
From the aforementioned Haybes, Tiger 131 is now in its correct colour scheme at time of capture - not that I go in for exact colour matches on armour but each to their own.

I dunno if the King has been updated with a paint job though.

Good stuff from Bovvy.
I took a proper camera this time. The originals are 4000x3000 pixels and weigh around 4-5Mb each.

I also snapped every vehicle exhibit in the current display at least once. The COs might have to paraphrase Chief Brody when I'm done: "We're gonna need a bigger server."

They've moved them about since I was there
I imagine that they moved 131 over to the door because they take it out to run around the arena on event days.
