Hello,
it starts with the tiger.
Once again, the building is not historically original.
Just have fun with the model.
It will depict a tiger in Italy.
As an addition, Friull chains, Pe from Part, accessories from eureka and tube and cover from Panzerart.

Historically accurate my arse Chaos mate..this is wiffy world..everything is Historically accurate in our heads so your build is perfectly accurate and I am liking this build.
I've built a ton of Tigers ..ive still got 3 of em .
I'll be watching this mate  ;D
If it aint broke ,,fix it until it is .
Over kill is often very understated .
I know the voices in my head ain't real but they do come up with some great ideas.
Theres few of lifes problems that can't be solved with the proper application of a high explosive projectile .

This looks interesting! I'm  sure that they would have built them if the German equivalent of Percy Hobart** had been available.

Current progress.
The tower fit quite well, but it had to be puttyed a bit.
Next time the first PE parts will be used the hatches and the gun.

Slowly but surely matey  ;D
I've got a bit of a idea for a tank I have with a mine roller ..not WW2 ..a M60 based one.

Super clean PE work mate..the barrel is rather nice it's just a shame it's a plastic muzzle brake but ..it's still very nice..gonna turn into a very nice build  :thumbsup:

Thanks and the muzzle brake is 3d printed from panzer art.

Very clean build so far.. too much etch for me these days.. nevertheless masterfully handled in your case.

You've done a terrific job with etch sir  :bow:
Decals my @r$e!

Nice work. The plastic lumps on the inside of the loaders hatch are the plastic representation of what you have added in etch and should have been removed, they are unfortunately not strenthening ribs.

Are those tracks metal?  :o

That's going to take some putting together, I'll be bound!
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Ouch, make your own track pins! I would be buying different track links as that is a bit too much for me. Not saying metal track links are bad, used a set myself on my take of a Panther F and there is nothing better in my opinion for draping track over road wheels.
