I'm currently building the Tamiya 1/35 Tiger II kit (Henschel turret) and im struggling to find many pictures of the Flectarn type Camo scheme.

Any help would be appreciated.

Any pictures of Camouflage nettingused by the german army in 1944/45 would also be useful (any vehicles) as well as how best to make it

Cheers

The Germans AFAIK never had any type of official camo nets. If there were any on their tanks, then it was captured materials and/or DIY solutions.

Looking for "Hinterhalt" camo pics when I have more free time. Just remember that it was the first standardised camo Germans used, since it was applied in the factories, using templates. So it should look very similar on vehicles of the same type.
