  1. This is great! I too love the spent casings on the floor. Hard to believe it’s a model!
  2. Tamiya 1/35 Jagdtiger Vehicle “X1” S.Pz.Jg.Abt 512 Iserlohn Germany April 1945
  3. Alrighty, I’m calling this one done! I had a blast participating in this group build. The tiger series of tanks are some of, if not my favorite tanks. The jagdtiger is a giant and it was a big build, but I enjoyed The whole process of it. I chose to represent a vehicle of the 512th s.Pz.Jg.Abt. Specifically vehicle X1 belonging to Hauptmann Albert Ernst. Thanks for looking and please excuse the poor photography skills!
  4. I have some woodland scenics foliage I’m going to use. It looks pretty decent and in scale. It’s a bit “bushier” and thicker than I’d like so I’m going to try and thin it out a bit and then add some different tones of green and brown to hopefully give it a good appearance. I’m very interested in creating some sort of diorama base but I’ve never created one before and am really not too sure where to start haha. I need to pop into the diorama section of this site and get a few pointers!
  5. Thank you very much! The dot filter came out much better than I anticipated it would but still a novice attempt haha. And painting tracks is probably one of the most stressful parts of the build to me. It’s hard to exactly replicate what they look like in person. I work construction so I try to eyeball what our companies excavator tracks look like and draw inspiration from those a bit.
  6. Thanks everyone for the kind words! This group build has been fun and it’s awesome to see such great work being done in here. Whenever I feel a little lull in creativity or ideas coming on I just browse thru everyone’s builds. It really keeps me inspired and enthusiastic about my build even during the tedious parts like tracks haha. I did take a day or two break this week to work on a panzer iv I set aside a month or so before this build. I had to step away from building tracks and do something more interesting. But I completed my tracks this week, primed, painted, and a little rust wash over the top. I’ve burnished two sets of metal tracks before with AK’s burnishing liquid and I really loved the result, but I figured I’d try painting this time. I saw someone use Vallejo steel as their track color ( I think it was @BIG X??) and I really liked how they came out, so that’s the color I used as well. I’ve pretty much got this build kicked in the rear and am hoping to have it finished by this weekend. Just need to paint up the spare tracks, weather the wheels and tracks a little more, then add a bit of foliage as the jagdtiger I’m trying to represent had practically a small forest on it. Perfect to hide all my mistakes . But anyways, enough rambling, here’s some updated pictures! Oh, I also kept breaking the aerials off, so they’re going to stay off until it’s completely done so I don’t destroy them anymore than what they already are haha
  7. That camo looks great! I would be excited if my first ambush attempt came out looking like that, I’ve yet to try one!
  8. Here’s a little weekend update! Got one side of tracks complete and now working on the other side. These master club tracks are beautiful but they definitely require some time to assemble. This week I got the weathering mostly done but I’ll save a photo for that for later. Hope you’re all having a great weekend and happy Father’s Day to the dads out there!
  9. Thank you! And that’s probably the best way I’ve heard the dot filter technique broken down yet, to me atleast haha
  10. I really like the paint job you’ve done on this, looks great! I’m a big fan of the dunkelgelb and green colors together.
  11. Greeting from the deserts of Nevada, where it’s starting to feel like summer now . Not too much progress this week, it was a busy one at work. My masterclub tracks came in the mail so I started on those but they’re going to take me a while to complete. I did decal, pin wash, and flat coated the jagdtiger and now I’m kind of trying a dot filter with oil paints. This is my very first time trying this technique so if anyone has any comment or critiques or helpful hints I’m all ears! this side has no filter on it yet: And this side and roof has had a one applied to it: I really like playing around around with this technique. But it’s hard for me to really conceptualize where to apply it, and really how to apply it properly. I’ve watched a few helpful YouTube videos but it’s still hard to replicate it as properly as it’s shown on the video. The roof area I’ve just tried to make it look like dirt and grime accumulated from foot traffic use. The sides is where I’m kind of trying to figure out how best to use this technique. But anyways hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to get some more progress done on the weathering and the tracks. Thanks for looking!
