I think the Zimmerit was the biggest concern for me going into the Tiger 2. Luckily for me, the compound was a paste that was put on the outside of tanks in 1944 and would harden. From what I gather, it had to be reapplied every few months or so because it would become worn and would no longer exhibit the ridges which were required to keep magnetic mines from sticking to the sides of the tank. Tanks with it on past the 1944 rescind order continued to use it without reapplying the paste, therefore making a "wear and tear" look much more likely for a late 1944-1945 era Tiger 2.
For those who disagree with my reasoning, feel free to edit it (i'll supply the rudimentary template)
As of right now importing models into SABOW has stalled. For the sake of my computer keyboard, I'll work on the late-war paint schemes alittle bit more today. I'd really like to get some schurtzen on the Stug III and Panzer III, but my 3d skills aren't up to the task.
