  4. I've had this kit in the stash for about 20 years and never really gave it much attention. Recently though I had a second look at it and despite a few parts suffering some sink marks, it didn't look too bad. Construction is actually pretty good, I used little in the way of filler, the turret required the most clean up but it is not beyond the most basic modelling skills. The driving lights suffered badly with sink marks, thus I pinched one from my spares box and re positioned it from the front armour to the top of the hull. I also left off the top bar securing the spare track links to the fron
  5. Panzerwaffe on the Battlefield #2 World War Two Photobook Series (9786155583323) Peko Publishing Panzerwaffe is German for tank or armoured weapon, which is a broad term that encompassed many, many homegrown and captured types in WWII, which may well have had a hand in their downfall, requiring specialist equipment and knowledge to maintain and repair their many types, which even included British and French types where they were captured in sufficient numbers to warrant pressing into service after modification to their requirements. This series covers many o
  6. Hi all, One of my older "on the shelf" kits- The 1/35 Hobbyboss VK4502 (P) : a prototype King Tiger option. I was even more pleased to find out it came with a full turret interior. I decided to have a go at the 'Octopus Camo' and I'm pretty happy about how it all came out. Apologies about the quality of photos, still getting the hang of this.

  8. This is the Italeri F-5N as an ex-Swiss Air Force Tiger now serving as a USN Adversary. To be honest, there’s not too much to say about this nice little kit: it goes together really quickly and, other than the addition of an Eduard Zoom set, a Pavla ejection seat and a bit of work to give some sort of representation of the complex canopy opening mechanism, it is pretty much from the box including the decals, which also include some nice Swiss and Austrian markings.
  9. Tiger I Early version (A1363) 1:35 Airfix The Tiger tank was part of Hitler's obsession for bigger, heavier and stronger, which drove him to extraordinary and dizzying heights of impracticality later in the war, but in this case served him well. The goal was to mount the extremely successful and powerful 88mm cannon (used in the Flak 36) in a tank with sufficient armour to withstand any round then-fielded by the enemy, and this was achieved, but at the cost of reliability and a legendary thirst for fuel. It also made for some interesting bridge-crossing as the fi
  10. I made this Tiger long ago. Kit are from Tamiya , very nice kit, fit very well and this is my favorite tank. Enjoy guys.
  11. Among numerous projects, anounced or not announced, Kitty Hawk is reported to have a 1/32nd Northrop F-5E Tiger II. Mike Benolkin from Cybermodeller has even reported words from Glen "Kitty Hawk" Coleman saying that the 1/32 F-5E is coming in March barring any logistics problems... Wait and see.

  12. Hi guys, here's my second attempt at model making, the Tamiya 1/35 Tiger 1 tank. https://flic.kr/s/aHsmggUQwj I initially intended to paint camouflage scheme used by panzer regiment in Italy September 1943, but couldn't perfect the fine airbrush technique for the two-tone colours. So I had to re-spray in desert scheme. I tried using Vallejo model air paint, but found this too thin to work with. The final finish was using Tamiya XF acrylic paints, which I found great to work with.
  13. Hello All, after an enforced layoff from modelling I have recovered these from the shelf of shame and completed the builds. Questions and comments welcome. Gee hope this works, not used to using Flickr after the photobucket debacle last year..... Happy Modelling Ian

  15. Hi all, Recently picked up a Heng Long mk1 Tiger for £60, painted in Panzergrau. The previous owner was a bit hamfisted, by that I mean he put the stickers on lopsided, the wrong number on the turret and the mudflap securing clip was snapped off. So, my plan is to repaint it as "Semken's Tiger", the first tiger captured in Normandy by the Sherman of John Semken, commander of the Wiltshire Yeomanry. The tiger in question is Tiger 114, 2nd Kompanie, 101st SS Schwere Panzer Abteilung. So my question is, does anyone know how to get hold of the appropriate decals or painting masks? Found
  16. Hi, I want to built a kit as a prezzie for a tank mad friend, and my eye has fallen on this kit because of the full interior. There seems to be quite a discrepancy in the prices of the different versions, and as I'm always after a bargain, are the extra parts included in some of the other kits? I.e., can an early production Tiger I (kit 5003) be built from the others? (whichever one is cheaper?)
  17. I was planning on doing just the F15E with bombs but can't resist a bit of orange, so will be doing the Tiger meet too. I have the RetroWings goodies from Domi to enhance the cockpits & burners. Obligatory box shots ready to start.
  18. Hi all, i apologise if this has been asked before but I can't find anything after searching. I'm building the Tamiya mid production Tiger 1 and have decided to attempt to apply zimmerit. I am also planning on removing some of the side 'mudguards/fenders' as damaged. My question is would the zimmerit have gone all the way down the side to the bottom of the hull side, or would it have been applied behind the side mudguards, (the ones that stick out the side) so if I remove some of the mudguards would the area underneath be covered in zimmerit or not?

GAZ-233115 STS Tiger-M SPN SPV 1:35 Meng Model Gorkovsky Avtomobilny Zavod, or GAZ for short are the leading manufacturer of commercial vehicles in Russia, and specialise in all-wheel drive heavy duty trucks, buses and light commercial vehicles. The Tiger is a development of the GAZ 2330 4x4 that is designed as a troop carrier for police and military forces, with good offroad capability, high speed and good handling on sand and steep gradients. The Tiger is an upgraded vehicle with ballistic protection to the sides and roof, with a large two-man turret-ring on the roof to allow bo
  20. Jagdtiger - Panzerjäger Tiger Ausf. B, Serial number 305004. One of the 11 Porsche–suspension variants, it was captured by British troops in April 1945 near Sennelager, Germany where it was being used for trials. The third wheel station on the left side is missing. Zimmerit was applied to approximately 2 meters high on the superstructure and the Balkenkreuz was painted in the mid section. An earlier 18 tooth sprocket ring is found on this vehicle. Seen at the Tank Museum in Bovington as part of their Tiger collection. Pictures thanks to Dave Wardle.
  21. Now I am getting the hang of Flickr, I thought I would upload some of my earlier models, built since returning to scale modelling 8 or so years ago. This was built from an Aldi Airfix Starter Kit. I cut the canopy to open it up, I think it may sit a bit high. The camo is from the little pots, but the azure blue was more like midnight, so I used some Humbrol Enamel. It doesn't look quite so virulent in real life! This second plane is an Aleutian P-40e. It's scratchbuilt from solid balsa, following WW2 US Navy recognition plans. These plans were issued to school
  22. Panzerjäger Tiger (P) Sd. Kfz. 184 Elefant. This is one of only two surviving examples. This was captured at Anzio by the Americans, and is now part of the United States Army Ordnance Museum's collection at Fort Lee, VA. Currently on loan to the Tank Museum in Bovington as part of their Tiger collection. Pictures thanks to Dave Wardle.

  24. Hey Everyone, Just been looking and forgive me if I am incorrect but I can not find a Thread that contains lots of links to tiger resources, so I have decided to make a Thread here that members can post photos, links and anything else they come across over the power of the internet. I'm going to kick things off here with some very high-quality photos of the Tiger Engine. https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPy94ANQVp-ZkovzQr-IIuRW3CDzu3EWo6_re3_siyGu9wuPqcxUUnr6yHPLo1qYA?key=LUY4czZkMVJsdHMxRE91cG9vUXVkd2M0dlFyRGF3 Can't for the life of me remem
  25. Hello and welcome to my very first post There are the first 1/35 scale Tamiya models I have built and was hoping some of you would be able to suggest improvements. I believe I am fairly good at making models but I need to venture into the more advanced weathering techniques to make them look like they have been used in a war, and not like they have just come out of the factory (which can still be a cool look). So I will explain my thoughts and opinions of each of these 4 models below and show you plenty of pictures of each: Tiger I: - I am quite proud of this mode
