The side bins were fitted only to the commander's Tiger, number "100", as far as we know.
These "initial" Tigers - all 9 of them - were originally fitted with the Pz.3 bin. In fact, you can see the...

The simple solution,...

Radek: I will be glad to help.

On the turret roof of your kit, you will find 3 very small cylinders; one at the rear, one in front of the cupola, and one in front of the loader's hatch.

Cable holders

You should omit the tow cables (they are wrong for the kit itself, as well as for the 502). The tank lost them pretty soon, anyway.

The holders for these cables need to be present. Here's how they...

had a tapered rather than a square plate at the end. Probably would be missing in your scenario. And definitely Zimmerit, these tanks all came in the same batch.

Tank dates

He says that following the delivery of new Tigers in August '43 (witness my photo above), the 503rd did not receive any more Tigers until...

Both of these tanks could have been built in December 1943. October is the earliest possible date for 212. I will dig out my books tomorrow and look at the dates when the 503rd were given new Tigers....

Why yes, for example this tank of the 503rd has the new turret, but still has Feifels and S-mines.

If the tank is so early that it never had Zimmerit, then here's a list of changes you might want to make:

Turret floor.

The colour for a turret floor in German tanks, such as Pz 3 to 6, was the grey-green colour used for the entire hull tub. But of course, with people literally living on it, and things leaking oil, it...
