Thanks fv432  Wink

The Jerry Can I've got is that colour, I think it's from the Africa corps.

It looks a bit yukiepoo on a grey tiger.

I'll just have to keep looking and asking till I find what I'm kooking for.

Hi Pzrwest. Cheesy Cheesy

You mean dunkelgrau same as the the tank? If so, that's easy.

Thanks for that... Wink

The white cross on a can denotes "WATER" only.

Tiger I with a couple of Jerry cans fitted. Cans were weathered to match the overall weathering on the Tiger I.

Hey FW Steiner... Grin Grin

That's a nice looking tank you got there!!!

How are the jerrycans held onto the side of the tiger?
They used to have retaining brackets into which the jerrycans used to sit on the original tigers.

Do I see a miniature camera on your turret?  Or what is that?

Hi Joe,

The Tiger I is one of the latest WSN/Trumpeter models.

I added the Jerrycans and a few other extras such as the helmets, kit and extra tracks on the front wings.

The cans are actually fixed to the Tiger with a screw through the rear, the cans sit in a can holder, two on the left one on the right and are held in place by  straps.

The device on the turret is the infrared receiver.

I have three minature cameras that I intend to fit in one of my tanks, but I haven't decided which one yet.
