Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Ivano, those lower fuel tank positions are interesting indeed, I may have assumed they would have just been "handed" thanks for the observation, please post more photos of that gorgeous engine bay I love the quality!

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Hi Tim and John, I had no plans to add the missing/top scallop piece, maybe this has been a missed opportunity for the after market boys, it would really need to be made of steel and securely fixed and fairly strong as the track could whip up and catch it. The thickness is a tricky one as the bend a...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

One of Steve's master pieces. I must get on with a few hours of welds this beautiful Sunday morning but it is the day of our Lord 8) We are also waiting on the exhaust shield stand offs, maybe they should be included in the kit?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Looks good Vince, in service it could be that dark, maybe mix and match to add interest. Keep experimenting, remember it's all in reverse as the colours underneath are what give it depth. 8)

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

The engine bay parts arrived yesterday, and more milliput applied. I have used the trade name "milliput" more than once 8)

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Hi Vince, I tend to create my own colours by applying the upper coats over the tacky base coats, in this case matt black over still tacky matt grey, I sometimes use red oxide to, then rub away at the cured paint (randomly but don't over do it) until it looks about right. Highlight with a dry brush t...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

Hi Allan, nice to know my words are helpful, we could almost write a workshop manual! Those filler caps were tight so you have to clean the threads up a lot, I use a rotary wife brush which destroys your finger tips but works really quickly, basically the threads are proud so you have to wear them d...

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

I'm back on the case, the Protze is now in Germany and the Cruiser will be on it's way to Florida very shortly. Finished the front fenders, started "first filling" of the plate tenons, the small hoist lugs are in and some milliput welds in place.
