Tiger I replica under construction in Germany.
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Tiger I replica under construction in Germany.

I know this subject has been up before but I came across some fairly new photos of the replica build today. You have to admire the dedication and attention to detail, very impressive! Let me know if anyone needs a recap on the history of the build.

Post subject: Re: Tiger I replica under construction in Germany.

Hi,

I'm curious about the colors of the paint. How confident are we that those colors are accurate?

I ask because the colors are much more vibrant and deeper than can be discerned in contemporary photos. I'm not suggesting that they are inaccurate, just that period photos didn't seem to capture the colors well. If those colors are accurate in hue and depth, then it means that these vehicles were far more colorful than we might otherwise think!

Chuck

The only links I've seen so far are in German, this one turns out at least readable with Google translator:

Stern coverage of the Tiger replica build in German

There are a couple of videos as well:

Google video, early.

YouTube video with engine start

WDR news coverage in German.

The builder states (in the Stern article in above post) that he is as accurate as can be, with only the correct blend for RAL 7028 really missing.

interresting article of Stern

What supprized me, is the part about the original drawings
Apperently an lot of it is still classified as being "top secret" because of the military origins of the design and some of the design features are still in use for modern tank designs Neutral
