HI chaps, this has been on my most wanted list for a while now and i finally managed to get one yesterday. Its an absolute monster of a kit, but i'm wondering if there is any 'must have' aftermarket for it? I'm hoping to make a start on it early in the new year, thinking about creating a diorama with it recovering a tank (not sure what yet though, could even use a Tiger 1 i have waiting to built) If anyone here has built one i would be very interested to hear your thoughts on it, and pics would be a bonus. Thanks, Nick
I now have the Airfix kit and am about to embark on my little photo reconnaissance project. As I wanted to depict my XIX in a natural metal finish, I was a little concerned at the panel lines and rivets. A very thin coating of ALCLAD will do nothing to hide them, and they seem a bit too obvious in that scale. Should I give everything a coat of surfacer first, do you think?. In any event, painting is a long way off as yet, and I would be grateful for any other tips on the construction. Thanks in advance Derek
