REVAMP OF KING TIGER.

Recommended Posts

eddiesolo    798

Last Christmas my lad got me a second hand King Tiger. I have just got around to looking at it and sorting it.

 

The electrics are a mess and need stripping and resorting, gearboxes kaput. The 2.4 system was dodgy-found a corroded and rusty terminal in the transmitter-sorted this and slapped into my lads Sherman, so something good from the tank.

 

The hatches are all broken...etc.

 

I was getting fed up and wondered weather to just pass on the shell when I thought I would use it as a test bed for colour schemes, camo etc. 

 

So, this is what we have now, some weathering and light rusting still to do, then it is decision time to shelve until I can afford the internals or pass on.

Cheers Vince, I have been working on it this morning, done the cables etc. Tracks are also weathered. Once finished it will sit in the work shed until I decide or need space :D
