Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've done a bit on the Cupola,cast texturing ad weld seams,which I put up on another post.

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.

I know it's shallow and superficial but I'm liking this Mr Surfacer 500.😁

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've tried my hand at cast texturing,as per usual I needed to get some paint on it to see how it looked.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

It's a minefield Mark,My philosophy is if it looks right then that will do for me whatever the colour code is.It seem that whichever colour you use it will be wrong to somebody.I don't mind as long as it looks ok .

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I'm happier with the Green,not sure if this is the combo I will go with.Its just a quick blow over the Gray to see how it looked.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Thank you Stephen,I'm sort of getting the idea that the colours are infinitely variable,so with that in mind ill look for the colours that suit me. I realise that just the Dunkelgelb has around 10 or more different shades. I never realised that choosing the colours for a Tank would be such a headach...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

Resistance was futile,I couldn't wait to see a couple of wheels with camo on them.To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.I used Ral 8017,brown and Ral 7017 green.The green is looks very grey to me.The brown is too red,I'm happy with the Dunkelgelb so I'll stick with that. I'm looking at Tiger ...

Re: Vince's Tiger 1 late variant 2017

Thanks Vince,I like your turret bin but I'll stick with the Armortek one for now and maybe retro fit one like yours.Is it a "Fields of Armour ", one?
