Zimmerite

Although I'm not quite ready yet it won't be long before I'm putting Zimmerite in my Tank.Ive bought some ready made Tile Adhesive and some Pva Glue.Is there a magic number or some sort of consistency I need to look for when i mix the Adhesive and Pva?Also could I use it for filling in the countersu...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thank you Vince,fair praise indeed coming from you with your skills.I always make sure I can go back to original before I have a go at something.

I'm sure you will soon be up to speed once you start using an airbrush.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've been painting the Hull today. IMG_20190403_20950.jpg I've done the inside White,White isn't a clever colour to learn how to setup a new spray gun.There are a couple of small runs but it isn't bad. IMG_20190403_33651.jpg IMG_20190403_50869.jpg I can start looking at putting the torsion bars and ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Hi Allen,I started by stippling Vallejo plastic putty,then I etched them,I'm not sure if they needed etching but I did it anyway.I then put a solid coat of Burnt Umber and misted Mahogany over it.I tried some light rust wash but it didn't take very well.The final part was I listed Matt Black on the ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

More painting,I did the weld seams on the bottom of the Hull so it was ready for paint.I had some Dunkelgelb made up in a 1 ltr tin with 1 ltr of thinners so I've got 2 litres which should be enough.The bloke who mixed it went off the code rather than my sample and it's a bit greener.No matter I'll ...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I stole your idea with the cake icing thing Vince.I was on a roll so just went sailing past the point where I'll Zimmerite without even noticing.😊

Re: Late Tiger Cupola.

I decided to go with the Milliput,I realise that some of you can do this in their sleep but it's the first time for me.Some of the welds look like they have been done by a Giant but it's 6th scale so I am a Giant.😁

Re: Late Tiger Cupola.

I've toned it down a bit,I need to try my hand at the weld seams and etch prime it now and see how it looks. IMG_20190327_35381.jpg I'm not sure which way I'm going to do the welds,I've got Milliput,3d fabric paint and also the plastic putty....we shall have a go at each to see which is best. Glen.

Re: Late Tiger Cupola.

Wow! Thank you for that.I will need to tone it down a bit but I shall put some cast detail on it.I might flat it down with scotchbrite and see how it looks.

Re: Late Tiger Cupola.

Thanks Adrian,The pics I've seen look similar but more like a cast finish.I suspect my finish is a bit too much.....bugger,I like how it looks aswell.I think I am going to need to tone it down.

It all adds to the build experience.😊

Late Tiger Cupola.

Has anybody got any pictures of a late Tiger 1 cupola?I know the cupola is cast iron on the real Tiger but i suspect the cast texturing on mine may be a little crude.I don't want to put the periscope armour and weld seams on if I reed to tone down the cast texturing.
