Default Tiger backlight

Hi!

I saw a lot of pictures from Tigers, but I didn't see where is the backlights of the tank. Altogether, are there backlights on the Tiger?

At first I thought at these, but they aren't painted at red.

Now, I'm sure.

Thanks!

The convoy backlight was on the left rear top of mudflap only for the Tiger I and blue tube in color for late tigers. Early and initial Tigers had a square red and orange lamping convoy light in the same location. A secondary back light was sometimes affixed to the left rear at the bottom of the hull.

Cool idea, Semseyp! Now, all I need is a set of step-by-step instructions on exactly how you did that...........with lots of pictures...........and diagrams............and a link to where you got the LEDs.

It’s not difficult to make it. I got an auger-bit with 2,5 mm diameter, and I bored holes. Then I got a scalpel, and I made the hols to angeled.

A light is two led in serial connection.(So it doesn’t light too bright).

I bought the leds in an communications shop.
