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. IMG_20190502_4188.jpg IMG_20190502_18192.jpg I can be getting o...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

No Vince,I haven't tightened them down yet.Ive just put them in far enough to grab the torsion bar so as not to lose the spring washers.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've painted the outer hull,the inside needs a bit of airbrushing just to tidy it up a bit. IMG_20190429_30945.jpg IMG_20190429_17297.jpg IMG_20190429_7460.jpg I've taken Vince's advise on-board and skimmed off the bolts.Ill try a little weathering but I don't want to spoil it so won't do too much.I...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I think you are right David,not sure about the weathering bit tho.😁 I've been doing some more weld seams,pretty much finished them on the lower hull for the moment I think.Im almost ready to put the final paint on the lower hull then refit the suspension and wheels.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

A friend of mine made me these... IMG_20190428_36365.jpg IMG_20190428_48847.jpg I've put cast texture on them but I'm not sure if I'm happy with them.It took him a while to machine them (they are not cast)So if I don't use them I'll feel guilty.I realise they are mostly hidden but I will know they a...
