Trumpeter 1/16 King Tiger

Recommended Posts

I have been working on the Trumpeter Tiger II for almost half a year now (yes I have pictures of the progress). But I've run into a problem with the Turret basket, on the real Tiger II there is the diamond plating at the bottom of the basket and in the kit the basket is bare. I also noticed that the diamond pattern around the turret basket is also incorrect and they are missing the diamond pattern for the drivers' feet. I am curious as to where one could acquire the correct diamond pattern and size. I have been looking around and couldn't find anything that is correct.

For the drivers foot plate and turret floor Plastruct #91681 is a good match. http://www.hattons.co.uk/46142/Plastruct_PS_148_91681_HO_Scale_Tread_Plate_x_2/StockDetail.aspx

The turret basket floor was a simple anti-slip plating, not the diamond style. Aber provide a good match but you will likely need two sets. http://www.aber.net.pl/detal,30.html
