I have a early, mid & late tiger I kits that are missing parts so I'm planning to build a tiger I hybrid, but I'm having trouble finding pic's that show which parts of each tank are used

Most pics are black & white and do not show much detail

Need to find detailed pics

I don't know if this helps Billy but it sounds like you're trying to build a "Fehrmann" Tiger, refurbished from damaged Tigers used for training until pressed into wartime service. Google might help typing in Fehrmann Tigers.
Or, maybe Scalemates could help. Look up Ryefield Fehrmann instructions. They cover 3 or 4 hodgepodge Tigers.
Good Luck and have fun with your project!

Ok I was wrong

I have a early & mid tiger I and a sturm tiger

So what I'm going to do is....

Lower chassis/steel wheels -- Sturm tiger
Upper hull -- Mid Pro. tiger
Turret -- early tiger

Might just build something you would have seen towards the end of WW II

The first thing which comes to mind would be a blown up wreck.

More like a tiger I with a different gun, etc.
