Hi all
I was doing a bit of a search on evil Bay for all things Tiger & came across a range of decals from H-Models, with some VERY interesting camo schemes. There are several with quite extraordinary colours but the one which sticks in my mind is the sheet referencing green Tunisian Tigers. I thought current info suggested these weren't the case.
Whose familiar with this brand's product & how much authenticated research is behind some of the camo schemes?

Thanks Keith. Not a bad read that thread. Initially (like years ago) I was fine with the philosophy behind the concept of the Germans 'washing/filtering' the Tunisian Tigers with Olive Green, but like pretty much everyone else, have moved on & happily accept the standard Tropen 1 or 2 colours.
I'm more intetested in some of the other schemes this producer highlights, which aren't even referenced to the names we're familiar with & used universally by most other decal companies eg they show a colour plate with med-large patches of Pz Grey over Dark Yellow/Red Brown
