Default Tiger I Early Painting Photos..

I just got to the post-shading phase of my Tiger I build. I am not really happy with the results on the post-shading. IMO the shading lines are a tad bit thick. With any luck a coat of very very thin coat of Flat brown and buff(misted on) should blend it all together. Did get a chance to play around with watercolors to weather the metal tow cables.


I attached a before and after photo -as well as gallery link.

Nice work. I suggest you to change hl stick with a reastic tank number.
Look at this paint scheme:

I am a little lost here. The paint scheme I'm using is straight out of the Tamiya Tiger I manual and I looked up Tiger 331 at the website below. http://www.tiif.de/thread.php?thread...1a90d6361912e7 The numbering should give me Tiger 331 SpzAbt 503 in 1943 -or- did I make an error?
. The only thing I need to add is the extra tracks near the front machine gun and it should be spot on.

Ok, that's right.
Paint color is the same.

Thank you for clearing that up. For a second I thought I referenced the wrong tank.

Updated Photos. I am happy with the overall results of the weathering. However I am not happy with the back end of the turret. Would it be a good idea to spray a thin coat of german grey to help thin those dark lines in?
