2003 Tiger 1 Mid landed in Belgium

Post by Tom Opsommer » Thu Jan 30, 2020 4:07 pm

Hello all,

So I managed to capture a 2003 tiger 1 from Simon Manning. Before I start this interesting build. I will be looking for some good reference material.
If anyone has any good suggestions I love to hear about them. As I'm not sure what exact tiger I will be making.

Best books would be Tigers in Combat Vol 1 to 3 the English versions are long out of print but in German its readily available then you have the series of books from Thomas L Jentz, D.W to Tiger I, Tigers at the front and Tiger I and II combat tactics, steer clear of anything from Waldemar Trojca his line drawings are known to be completely wrong and his colour plates are a figment of imagination for on line reference you could do no better than http://tiger1.info/ I hope this helps a little

Learned something there - thank you! :)

So after weeks of being abroad and removing surface rust. I finally started a first test fit of the hull.
Now waiting for an extra spray can of etch primer to do the last pieces for the final assembly.

So I am not so good at remembering to take pictures and sharing a build.

Luckily I remembered to take some pictures today.

So the hull is now one piece.

I did a ton of painting and my first zimmerite.
