 I also agree with the others, It's some top quality work :thumbsup:

 

 If it was on the front cover of a model mag, I would buy the model mag, just to read about the build of this Tiger 1 ;)

That's a class build Steve, and the finished article is brilliant. Nice one.

Outstanding. One of the best 1/35 models I've seen for quite a while.

Wow, it's so realistic! I couldn't find any differences comparing a photo even after intentionally trying to do so for some time:)

Top job!

I'm feeling the need to do some U.S armour next......something heavy.............. already sitting in the pile........but somebody is already doing one .......so not sure whether to do a thread on it or not.

:thumbsup:  yes i was but it might be a little boring...as i will be doing it as it would have been seen during mobility trials at Aberdeen proving grounds...which means boring ole olive drab and no markings to speak of.......the thing is i don't do paper panzers and if i do do experimental vehicles they have to be done as they really appeared ....no fictional paint or ficticios scenarios ...i don't have a problem persay with it but my OCD will be screaming in my ear "this didn't exist" all the time im doing it. I love what PanZair is doing with his and i wish i could bring myself to do something similar but i just can't....and yes before you ask this is something that does affect my everyday life as well and drives my wife bloomin nutz:D
