    1/6 scale all metal scratch built late Tiger1

    Post  Guest on Sun Dec 11, 2011 7:42 pm

    Hi everybody,
    For the last three years I have been scratch building a late Tiger 1 tank, and its nearly finished . I have finally gotten round to the paint job, however I have realized that I am not skilled enough to get the desired effects.Are any of you skilled modellers willing to do for me?
    I will post some pictures of it in about a week , for anyone that is interested.
    Thanks
    Regards Joe

    As I saw your note above I went searching in the Forum setup and disabled a security feature I was not aware of. You should be able to post pics now bounce

    And by the way welcome on board and looking forward to see the beast Cool

    Sorry I took so long as I had more urgent things to do........
    Here are the photos I promised to post, if anyone is interested to help me with the paint job, I would really appreciate it, this project has taken three years of my life, and its a shame to ruin it with a bad paint job.
    Thanks Joe

    Simply WOW!

    Is this a scratchbuilt? You amazed me this morning, seeing a damn nice cat, you have made a wonderful late Tiger1, love all details inc the zimmerit very up to scale.

    If not mistaken the back jerrycan carrier was a field modification by a particular unit ... if I recall correctly served in Normandy, so painting, one has to find the right scheme.

    Man you have to come over to our club and yes you should exhibit this cat this coming exhibition ... please do come, you have so nice a gem which is a pity not to see in real! Surely at our club we will help you and assist you with the paint job!

    I like that you are using the red primer as the real thing, if you are planning a late model remember to prime the gun [not the muzzle] in grey as it seems that was the norm for guns, so when you aplly some scratches it will show the difference ...

    PS - I noticed you are using the Tamiya kit for referance/scaling, I would rather have prefered the Dragon as they have a more corrected cat ... but still these are minor issues as the job is awesome! Prosit!

    Ivan

    I echo Ivan's words completely!! Yes, you MUST come to the club. I'm more than sure that the AFV nuts and all the others will find your job extremely interesting and will certainly help you with your painting.

    I'm no AFV expert but DAMN that's a nice looking cat. I agree with my mates, you definitely must come over to the club.

    Well done!!

    Hello Jobeth,

    WELL DONE - A very beautiful piece of model engineering. When considering that the model was made from steel, it's a state of the art scale model. Wink

    As most of the SSM members know I own a real MG34, and I can confirm that the one you have made, leaves nothing to be desired. Surprised

    Are the track links casted from white metal or resin. Shocked

    I fully agree with all the others - you must come over to our club house. We meet every Wednesday evening. Please come, and bring the big cat with you.
    cheers
