thanks ern, i do mostly 1/35 scale armour so i thought i would give the big stuff a go, its a lot harder to paint than usual due to the weight and size of the beast, but i hope to learn a lot more with the help of you guys.....

Hi Oz,

Nice Tiger.
Get yourself to this address:- [link=http://rctankwarfare.exofire.net/Forums/index.php]RCTANKWARFARE[/link] and sign up.
It's a new UK based armour forum and really worth a visit.

Hi Oz and welcome to the "collectors corner". Nice Tiger. Like you, I have been doing a lot 1;35 armor, but you will find that lots more detail can be put into the larger scale stuff. On to the other side, the detailing has to much more exact owing to its visibility and that accessories are not so available, so scratch building and improvising is needed. It's a lot of fun and the rewards of getting one finished with everything staying on with the tank bumping cross country, turret traversing etc is really satisfying. Any questions you have will be answered by a dozen or so knowledgable guys on this forum.

you will need to apply some nicks and scratches to the edges to simulate wear the add some mud and dirt to the wheels and hull then apply a very thin coat of tamiya buff to simulate bust and fading and you will have a great lookin tiger

your right pattoncommander, with models once its done it sits on a shelf but with this beast when its finished i can run it about in the garden, and the more i look at it the more detail i see that could have went on too it, i did put some pics on a model site but got zero interest!! although one guy did say that for a das reich tiger the desert yellow was to dark[&o], i have one question tho, if i put on metel tracks is it wise to upgrade the whole suspention ? and bubbajoexx, would it be best to paint the scratches on or actualy scratch the paint itself ?.

That is a fine looking Tiger you have done up. Paint is awesome. Could use some more weathering maybe, but that is a personal choice thing.

What colors and brand of paints did you use? It doesn't look like Tamiya to me and that is refreshing!
