  1. I made this Tiger long ago. Kit are from Tamiya , very nice kit, fit very well and this is my favorite tank. Enjoy guys.
  2. Hi there everyone, I'm new here and I would like to ask if anyone can help me identify a symbol or insignia from a 1 35 scale Academy kit of Tiger 1 tank called Operation Citadel. On the decal sheet it is labelled as " 5 " . It has a yellow box as a background and red lines I cannot describe within the yellow box. It is meant for the Totenkopf version of the Tiger 1 during operation citadel. I will try to upload a picture here, if not can someone tell me what the symbol means by looking it up on the Britmodeller review ? It is there in the pictures. Thanks!!
  3. Hi all I am still cracking on with the other build even though I have gone silent for a while cause real life happened. Starting from tomorrow the builds should pick up momentum because I will be officially on leave. Anyhooo the idea here is to build a little dio with a tiger 1 and the panzer iv in 35.The crews standing around taking a rest and onr big mouth member taking it on himself to discuss "that girl in France" everyone hanging on his every word. Will post pics as soon as we start the build. Regards: Shaun
  4. UPDATE 3.7.17 THIS RFI IS 'UNDER RECONSTRUCTION' THANKS TO PHOTOBUCKET. COMMENTS AND PHOTOS DO NOT NECESSARILY PAIR UP, BUT ALL VIEWERS' COMMENTS AND MY REPLIES REMAIN. HOWEVER, I HAVE DELETED SOME OF MY RAMBLINGS WHICH ARE NO LONGER RELEVANT. . This was my first diorama after a 35yr hiatus in model-making and I was quite pleased with it at the time. I finished it before joining BM and therefore before I realised how 'poor' it was in comparison to the best in BM. Soon after joining, I decided that I was going to re-build this dio, replacing the figures with those contemporary with the Normandy landings, improving the buildings and replacing the Tiger with one I have yet to build. So this diorama no longer exists. The building on the right has been removed, as has the entire front edge of the dio. I will get round to 'up-grading' everything at some point in the future, but I am currently deeply engrossed in constructing my 'ever evolving diorama' and this is going to take me another year at least. In the meantime, here's how the dio appeared in its then 'finished' state. Prizes to those who can spot the pair of discarded boots. TFL Badder
  5. Hi everyone, Just a placeholder here for now, got myself a 1/35 scale Tiger 1 with a set of Atak Zimmerit and Friul Tracks. Also got a collection of spares that I shall 'borrow' off my ol' man! I'll hopefully get some photos up of the kit tomorrow but as for the accessories they're floating somewhere in the big red mass of the Royal Mail As for colour schemes it'll be in a Dunkelgelb base with Dunkelgrun streaks that was floating around Russia somewhere after Kursk, maybe i'll through in some red to keep it interesting. In terms of experience however it'll be the second time I've used the friul yet the first time with Atak so break out the superglue! It'll also be the first time I've done a tank with a camouflage scheme other than olive drab or panzer grey so it will be interesting practising the German Schemes! Oh and this is my first group build so let's hope for the best! Thanks Guys! Sam
  6. This was a scene I put together for two of my Achtung Panzer GB builds. When I was planning what to do for the base I thought it was a good opportunity to see what could be fitted onto the maximum size of base allowed in the proposed Vignette Group Build - 6 inches x 6inches. The base itself is MDF over which I added some filler to try give the impression of part of a cart type track with some slight raised areas ether side. All the green stuff is left over from some railway modelling projects from many years ago. The figures came with the Dragon Tiger 1 kit. The background sky is part of my Spitfire display base/shelf. The WIP for the whole project can be found here. Top down view: Kind regards, Stix
  7. I'm probably getting a bit too carried away with the anticipation and excitement of it all but I've decided to build another 1/48 tank to go along with my Hobby Boss M4A3. This one in fact: With it's rather lovely packaging: I hope this is okay with the mods? The Tiger 1 has fairly recently become one of my favourite tanks and, while I was looking for a suitable 1/48 version for this GB I came across AFV Club's Final Version Tiger 1. I found it online and had one on order, but the retailer was unable to get one from the supplier, despite claiming to have several in stock when I ordered. I then struggled to find another one at a reasonable price. I had given up on getting one when I read somewhere that AFV Club's boxing was based on a kit produced by Skybow. Then, by chance, while checking out Parabellum's website, I discovered they were offering the Skybow Late Tiger 1 kit for £11. AFV Club's version comes with a small PE fret whereas I've had to buy it separately - but it worked out at about the same as the cheapest AFV Club's version I could find. When I picked up this tank I also got the track links set to go with it. I will post some photos of the contents of the box later. Kind regards, Stix
  8. Does anyone know what the photo etched parts on the left is used for? There seems to be three rings of PE, pluss two tiny parts that looks like maybe a bolt attached to each small elongated metal plate. Btw, the box I got, looked nearly identical to the image, only change was that the milled part seen in the image, a ring to be fitted closer to the "root" of the barrel, was milled together with the barrel and wasn't a separate part.
  9. I am having a difficult time finding metal tracks for this Tamiya 1 Late version kit I have in 1:35 scale, there seems to be various models, and it looks like the tiger tank versions had some differences to the wheels over time, I just don't know if those differences are cosmetic on a model or of the differences are more important that than fitting wise. Does anyone know if the following product from Friulmodel (ATL-06) will match the wheels and such? Here is an image of a product I think might match:
  10. Does anyone know where to buy a Rye Field Model Tiger 1 from in the UK or EU? None of the sites I have checked show any for sale.
  11. Hello fellow modelers. I have decided to build the Dragon's 1/35 Tiger 1 for my best friend. All was going well until I had to do the paint chipping. I have tried it first with a brush, but was in general dissapointed. Therefore I removed the paint and started again with AK worn effects. After disastrous results with the AK worn effects, where the paint just cracked and fell off in large pieces (TWICE!), my frustration really grew. I've spent countless hours looking for videos on how to paint chip, but none were helpful. I came across this site: http://www.scalemodellingnow.com/tbfinishing-armourpaintchipping If we look at the chipping its very tiny. My question is, how do you make that kind of chipping, as all I can do with my 0/2 brush is significantly larger and less realistic: http://shrani.najdi.si/?1v/xq/2ElpQ4uk/tiger-1-6.jpg I didn't even come close. If you have any advice on how to do that kind of chipping I would be very grateful. I've watched that guys video but the chipping that he does at the rear is easier and totally different to the one on the hatch. Best regards, Jaka
  12. This was a really fun build. Initially I was a little dismayed when I opened the box for this kit - it is old and shows it's age - but, as it turned out, it made for a thoroughly enjoyable little upgrade project. I added some left over bits and pieces from Dragon and Revell projects, plus some styrene. There's also a couple of bits of a Red Bull can! The WIP can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234971585-airfix-176-tiger-i-yeah-that-old-one-upgradeda-bit-update-050515-a-bit-of-a-baseboard/ The trees are from Woodland Scenics and the soldiers are Airfix's 1/72 Afrika Korps all on an MDF base covered with a product from TreeMendous - not sure what this stuff actually is though! The tufts are left over from previous projects. As with all my kits everything is brush painted using Humbrol and Revell acrylics. Comments and suggestions welcome. Also I made the base to measure 6 inches by 6 inches just to see how much space there is on the size of base that can be used in the possible Vignette Group Build - if it gets voted through the vote at the end of the year. If you think you'd like to take part in this GB and haven't signed up yet the thread can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975282-vignette-group-build/"]http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234975282-vignette-group-build/ I was surprised how much space I had on this base with only a small 1/76 tank on it. Kind regards, Stix
  13. “Was vor uns liegt?” - Two Tigers – a chance meeting? (For details of each Tiger please see below) King Tiger No.333 PzKpfw SdKfz 182 Ausf.B S.Pz.Abt.501 - Ohrdruf Proving Ground, Germany 1944 Kit: 1/72 Dragon Armor Pro Series King Tiger - Henschel Turret w/Zimmerit This was the first kit I finished for the Achtung Panzer GB and it was completed back in March. However, I waited until I got a base made for it before putting it in the RFI section – and in fact I’ve decided to display it alongside the 1/72 Dragon Tiger 1 I also made for the GB. I’m going to post both builds in this one thread rather than clutter up too much of this area of BM! (I’ve still got three other APGB builds to post here at some point!) The only things I added to what comes in the box are the cable for the front light, the brackets that secure the front fenders to the side skirt armour and the aerial. Paints are all Humbrol and Revell applied by hairy sticks. WIP - http://www.britmodel...40315-finished/ And with a twenty pence piece to show the size: Tiger 1 No.112 Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.E Tiger 1 late 1./Pz.Abt.101 Normandy 1944 Kit: 1/72 Dragon Armor Pro Series Tiger 1 w/Zimmerit plus Tiger Aces figures This was the second kit I finished for the Achtung Panzer GB. To what's in the box I have added spare track links on the turret (links kindly donated by Sgt.Squarehead for my D-Day Tiger 1 build) tow cables (made from twisted wire) and the turret machine gun from the spares box. It's all brush painted with Humbrol and Revell acrylic paints applied with hairy sticks. The WIP thread can be found here: http://www.britmodel...0315/?p=1914060 And with a twenty pence piece just to show how small it is!: Kind regards, Stix
  14. Right - I am now getting a bit carried away (or I ought to be!). Now that my 1/72 Dragon King Tiger is nearing completion it's back at home where I can do the remaining work on it, decals etc., but only at weekends. Having done a quick check through the list of builds in this GB I realised, if I'm not mistaken, that no-one is making a 1/72 Tiger 1. I'm making a Tiger 1 in 1/48 and DaveJL is building one in 1/35. Then, a couple of weeks ago, while in Birmingham, I was in the Ian Allen bookshop where I noticed this: .......and it was reduced! So this will be my next weekday build and this GB will have Tiger 1s in three scales. I'm thinking I might make it as part of a small diorama alongside the King Tiger. Not sure of the setting yet. I hope to get this started tomorrow. Kind regards, Stix
  15. Hey guys! whilst building my Lancaster, i felt that i needed to build something "plastic" so i thought to do a tank of my liking. after having to decide between the tiger, a kv1, the jagdpanther, a hetzer or a Churchill i decided to go with the tiger (planning to do the others next). the kit should arrive tomorrow, is there anything i should know about before going ahead and putting it all together? i have read about people changing tracks and barrels, any particular reason why? and where can i find replacements if i should change them? paying extra is no big deal, as i would rather it look as good as possible thanks for reading and i shall post some images when it arrives thanks -lord
