Yes, agreed. If you look at original period photos you can see the Jagdtigers were dunkelgelb with Balkenkreuz. And the Porsche turreted tiger wad of course put together by the Reme after the war.

According to the information placards, the Porsche-turreted Tiger II was captured at a training or testing center - the Bovington Panther and Jagdpanther were completed by the REME, and have REME inventory tags on the front of their hulls - you can barely see them in the pics below:

You know he stole one of those right? I have the transcripts of him being interrogated by the police.

In 2010 the Police confiscated the engine belonging to the Swedish Tank Museum. The engine was "found" in a "high profile" collectors workshop.
