Hi All!

What colors are the s.Pz.Abt.504 Tiger 1's while they were stationed in Germany around the Feb 1943 time frame?

Around that time period I am asking about, they already have some Tigers. Could these Tigers conceivably be painted "Panzer Grey" since they were factory fresh at that point?

Thanks!
