Many thanks guys much appreciated. We are awaiting the engine deck grills and the near side sprocket but other than that she's all done, the tracks are still a bit tight but will settle as will the suspension. I did forget to fit the lovely stab antenna for the photos. The running trials went well, she's now on single stick control, what a performance to set that up using the Spektrum DX6e , the knowledge base was very helpful, if your new to the hobby I doubt that you could set it up without it but there's so many tx tweaks to get it to work ( and you have to use aux1 channel, not the gear channel ) it's still a mine field! 8

Hi Phil
That looks the dogs danglies now it’s done, wasn’t sure about the winter camo at first but now it’s complete everything blends into a very convincing replica. Your customer should be very happy with his new Tiger.
Regards
Steve

The level of detail you have added to the model makes it more realistic, I have always been a fan of " through the hatch" detail this changes it from a model to a scale replica in my opinion, well done.

Thanks Phil, glad the Knowledge Base was a help. Always good to get feedback. It does need updating but unless there's positive feedback it hardly seems worth the effort. Great model and enjoyed reading your blog.

Wonderful Build Phil :!:

Fantastic detail. But also fantastic because it actually works, moves and lives.

As an engineer, I appreciate models that do what the original was designed to do.

Static's are great, if you want a snapshot.

If you can achieve self propelled and static detail, well, that's a step up.......... my opinion. 8)

and it's all here.

Thanks guys you are the judge and jury and i'm happy with the verdict, I was a bit unsure of the winter camo request mainly as I have seen some very unconvincing examples and never applied white wash to this extent before but i'm very happy with the end result! 8)
Thanks to Phil ( the boss) for asking me to build the Tiger, for me and him it's been a huge amount of work in a relatively short space of time but it's been a pleasure indeed.
I believe he has a RR armoured car that is next on the list for me, that should be something different! 8) That Chieftain is calling right now!
