  1. Hi Pals, For this occasion, something different, "the opposite side of the cannon", something with a Germanic flavor (more Soviet armor will arrive for lovers of them). It is the Tiger II, perhaps together with the Tiger I, the most iconic armored vehicle in the German arsenal, if not the entire IIWW, IMHO ... To try to represent him, I have assembled and finished the kit offered by Zvezda in its Henschel version. The kit is quite complete, just see the box that contains it, which is immense. I do not remember great difficulties for its assembly, the instructions in general are good and the fit as well. It includes some interior parts in the turret, rather the barrel, but they are very basic, so I have not spent too much time, rather to try to make interiors, for more complex kits than if they include detailed interiors, for later. I have included the tow cables made with twisted copper wire, as the kit includes a thread, very little showy ... A metallic ABER antenna for the end, a spare MG34, a metal frontal machine gun and some helmets. The painting has been a bit challenging, as it is my first tritone camo, and I have tried many tones until I found the one that made me feel most comfortable, so I have had to clean at least 3 times ... a very boring and annoying process ... at least I didn't have to throw it away ... lol Once "the balance" was found, the weathering process began, with oils basically, and acrylics for the chips. A little vegetation in spots and especially on the inner sides, and some mud at the bottom of the hull, nothing too intense. I think the result is very close to what I like to see in other models, only to improve for the next ... Thanks for watch and comment as always. Cheers and TC Francis. BLACK BACKGROUND
  2. A pair of heavy ones. The Esci Jagdtiger and the E-100 from Trumpeter. Thankfully rather handy in 1/72 scale.... Cheers / André
  3. My second colection of german tanks (WWII) And "yes" is shall post it later one by one if you all like... Maybe with a poll??
  4. This is going to be my second build for this GB: I thoroughly enjoyed building Dragon's 1/72, Zimmeritted, Panther and Tiger for the D-Day GB so when I saw this online I figured it it would be great for this GB. As of this post it is the first German armour in this GB. Can't wait to get this one started after next weekend. I will be building this when I'm not at home so, like my recent 1/76 Airfix Tiger 1 and Cromwell builds, it will be made with only very limited equipment available. Kind regards, Stix
  5. Here are some recent photos of my 1/35 KingTiger Build: Very nice kit from Dragon with absolutely loads and loads of parts! + Metal barrel and brass shells Construction is almost complete, painting Detailing and Weathering to follow: Photo-etch grills: Steel Wire: The Track racks are particularly fiddley on the turret sides as there are no marking for attachment, just careful and accurate placement. Only one side complete so far. Some of the sub assemblies - immense detail for some of the parts will not be seen.
