Tiger I. S.Pz.Abt 502. Vaivara, February 1944. Narva Bridgehead.


Recommended Posts

Hi guys !!

This is the Trumpeter 1/35 Mid Tiger I. 
Vehicle is based on the 2/502 vehicles, fighting at the Narva Bridgehead in early ‘44. 
Thanks to @DByrden for confirming the location as Vaivara Station. 
 

The vehicle is based on these photos, and I could not see any Zimmerit on these particular vehicles and photos, or the third photo shown in the build log.

So, on to the build. 
Basically straight from the box, with just tow cables added, cold weather tarps from parchment paper, and a limited pallet of Vallejo and Windsor and Newton oils.

I noticed that there are already several tanks on this site, and you made another one! :rofl:
It's good that your tank looks really good and interesting. I liked the tarpaulin, weathering, and winter camo. And photos with natural light is good too. Congratulations, a really great result!

Very nice Lee. You've done a great job on this. I especially like the wet weather tarps. Good job.

Super work Lee, weathering is great, particularly around the road wheels. 

 

Just need a little fella in the spinning thing on top! 😉

Thanks guys !!

Had a few issues with lighting, which can be rectified, and the winter whitewash went a little better....

 

Not like that Pz III.... Which has been stripped for parts... And still sits on the shelf as a reminder that everything is still one step away from disaster.... 🤣

 

Onwards, and Upwards !!

 

Lee ;)

The Pink Panther Tiger! Looks great in the N African setting, though the reference photos initially made me think it was snowy. 

 

A classy weathering job, well done.

It is rather pink, in the first pix 🤣

Nice work. It always helps to have a photo of the real thing to inspire and guide the build.

Thanks, Ian !! 
Yes it does. 
Ive tried to steal away from actual vehicles, but it seems that the last few builds have been of actual, photographed vehicles.
