    Default please help with king tiger question

    hallo all
    I am looking for an expert advice or help on the following

    I have a model of a prebuilt DRAGON King Tiger tank 1/35 scale
    item n.61030 pz.abt.506 ardennes 1945

    This is an HENSCHEL production version of a command tank with zimmerit and star antenna at the back

    On its turret the numerals 101 are placed as 1+01 in black with white outlines

    someone said to me that this tank is possibly incorrectly numbered for a command tank/tank of the pz.abt.506

    Is this true?
    is this tank accurate for paint scheme/markings/numbering for the time period/place of operations it supposed to depict?

    thanks very much for helping me!

    regards
    stefano

    1+01 itīs the marking for the first company commander; 01 is the marking for the battalion (abteilung in this case) commander.
