any plans for a plastic mid turret? I ask because plastic is easier to tweak or modify than metal.

The late and mid are actually the same. We decided for the initial release to give the mid version Tiger its own instead of listing late/mid as compatible. I will most likely revise this in the future, but to help with online orders the mid version was added.

No the zimmerit is glued on. It is part TAG120082 on our site. This batch was grey in color for the turrets. What do you guys think, grey or green a better color? Since it gets painted over anyways I don't think it would matter too much...

thanks...good to know. wasn't concerned about color for the reason you mention. but, grey has less chance of coming through the paint or "pre-shading" it...if there's a choice.
