The Tiger tank in all its variants, initial, early, mid and late productions, is one of the most modelled subjects by modellers across the world, this version is the Academy 1/35 early production without interior, one of four Academy Tigers that i have in my stash
I wanted to do this one in a a well worn winter whitewash scheme over panzer gray and give it a very well weathered appearance from the harsh extreme conditions on the eastern front.
Some initial construction shots, i added photoetch grilles for some extra detail on the model. I also used individual track links on this Tiger
Initial whitewash covering
Time for the fun to begin and start chiping with the now well known and well used and well described online, hairspray technique
And now the real fun stages with some initial washes and weathering using some AK products as well as some oils and pigments
Ive since done some more work on this one and will get the pics up asap,really happy with how this one is turning out and has me thinking of also going for this winter type appearance for when i start my 1/16 Hobby Boss Tiger very soon..............
So you're going to take the plunge with the 1:16 Tiger!! That's going to be epic!
I just wouldn't be myself here if I haven't complain about something
I hope you remember me still, got some time to spare now that college got a bit less complicated. Some builds are coming up shortly i hope
I don't care if you put a tutu dress on the tank it looks bloody good. More artistic license and less counting rivets thumbs get a thumbs up from me
Well... without caunting rivets, the tank is preatty good, I really like the rust on the missing front fenter joint
