Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

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?

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

It kind of breaks my heart making something all new and shiny look old and rusty...

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

No Vince they are not functional.but they do look good once they are painted.I believe that the hatches are painted the some colour as the outside of the Tank....So Dunkelgelb then.😊

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I got a couple of the Armorpax hatches put together and primed.I am more than likely going to use the Armortek hinges although I haven't unpacked them yet so I'm not sure how much fettling will be needed.

Re: Novice Late Tiger Build.

I've been putting wheels together,I've got some more priming and painting to do again.I may just leave in bare metal until I've done my trial run of the lower hull.
