Thank you for the reply David. I’m aware that Tiger 131 is a recent repaint, my assumption being that between Jentz, Doyle and the rest of the restoration team, the colors chosen would have been the most accurate possible. Given the overall poor quality of most museum repaints and the efforts put forth with this project, I would have expected 131 to spot on. Am I being overly optimistic?
Here is a Panzer II F engine compartment, while the tank’s exterior appears to have been repainted, the engine compartment seems to be in original paint. Note the parts painted in RAL 7009, with the distinctive greenish tint, as contrasted to the walls, which appear to be painted in Hellgrau;
Although I wonder about the splotches of gray around the hatch opening? Is this actually very faded Dunkelgrau?
I have noticed other interior photos of different vehicles which show both colors in use on the same vehicle.
I really don’t know what we have here in terms of paint.
