Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've been working on the turret,the rotation is working and the recoil motor is running but as the limit switches arnt connected and not plugged into the sound I'm not sure on its function yet.I decided I'd paint the brackets and the mantle.Ive managed to get some overspray inside so that will need ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thanks Phil,I think you are right as in the skill is not over doing it.I may give it another go.

It wasn't getting it whilst I was doing it,I just seem such hard work for such little gain.I feel happier doing the weathering after I've done the main colour.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I'm not sure this weathering is my thing.....It seems a lot of work for little gain.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've done some work on the hatches today,the plan was to put some rust effect under the main colour. IMG_20190528_50183.jpg 20190528_180019.jpg So that's what I did,it didn't quite work out as I had forgot to put this stuff on over the rust... IMG_20190528_28937.jpg I was going to re-do it but time ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

The Zimmerite is done for now so I started work on the hatches.Ive done just one at the moment,it needs finishing and a bit of weathering doing on the inside but it looks ok. IMG_20190527_41620.jpg I did think about using the Armortek hatches and detailing them with the Armorpax parts but i haven go...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Could they have been prismatic so they had more than a straight on view?

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Very nice Vince,I so wish I had your skills and patience.I spent a whole day right next to Tiger 131 last year taking photos and measurements of the Elefant which is parked next to the tiger.I hardly noticed anything on the Tiger which would be useful to me when I started building mine. I had the sa...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thank you for your encouragement,Kent,I did think about putting it behind the track guards and may still do so.Although I've redone the left side I am still not happy with it so,I could extend both sides down.The biggest job is not the Zimm but the getting the tank outside to spray it.The airbrush s...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.,zimm and paint.

I've done most of the Zimmerite and sprayed the base colour.The tile adhesive was starting to go off at times and became difficult to spread so I just added water which made things a lot better. IMG_20190522_8630.jpg Hardly the most professional setup but good enough. IMG_20190522_43620.jpg It looks...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've been trying my hand at Zimmerite,I know that it is random and subjective but how untidy is alright?

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thank you Vince,that's exactly what I needed,I thought the motor was at the back of the turret ring,So I can relax how I stack the modules.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Deja Vu,only this time everything is final....hopefully. The wheels are painted in Camoflage as in the Tiger 222 Normandy.I was going to weather the track pin guides and bump stops but didn't as I'm not good enough to make it look good.
