Please find five pictures of my most recent build; Tiger 3 of sPzAbt 508, a November 1943 production Tiger I (mid).

The base-kit is the Cyber Hobby 2011 release back-dated and converted to a non-command version.

The base-kit is enhanced with Voyager Model PE, Milliput Zimmerit, Panzer Art resin barrel with muzzle cover and Friul tracks amongst other small additions.

I hope you like it; I had a great deal of fun building it!












Sorry it took so long - I got busy.

Comments welcomed.

Thanks Gary & especially for the comment on the Zimmerit - I tried really hard with that.

Never fear; many more Tiger builds to come!

Thanks David

I'll get some nicer pictures up when the travel lock, antenna & Bosch light lens are on. I won't correct the hatch stoppers, but will bear in mind that detailing for the next fresh Tiger build I get to (I have already built April 1943 engine hatch detailing).

Any more thoughts on my Tiger 911 question?

...and finally (in this series of 6660 pictures):



The Gepack Kasten is OOB as I built the Lion Roar one in PE, but the 3D detailing of the box lids was poor & I decided to conserve resources here as the Dragon one is pretty good in any case.

The last detailing to go is the antenna, the Bosch light lens and the travel lock in PE. I should be finished with this build during the week.

I have changed plans & will build Tiger yellow 911 with black outlines Totenkopf for an April 1943 Tiger.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Once again; sorry for the hiatus. Normal service will be resumed with April 1943.

Thanks!

Having completed March 1943 and part-built April 1943 I decided to step out of the line and build one of the recently-released CH Mids. So far I have added Zimmerit to half of the hull and the turret - the mantlet and hull sides are next for pasting!











Phil; I hope you're proud of me...I tried my best, honest. I used Milliput standard two-part putty & the ModelKasten Zimmerit rollers (the larger being my favourite for the turret).

Catch you all soon.

Almost all of the final details are now on Tiger 323, Berlin, May 1945.



Just the track cable & front plate spare track bar to go on...

Thanks for looking!

Slipping slowly back into the game...

Hi Guys!

Following yet another Cyber Hobby White Box Tiger I announcement I think I need to make some room in the modelling stash, so I have decided to sell on some non-Tiger related 1/35 Panzer kits with PE, white metal & resin super-detailing sets 'all inclusive'.

For a full list and prices, please follow this link;

Panzers for Sale!

Thanks for looking & happy modelling!

Hi Bill. Been a while since I dropped in last, but good to see you´re keeping the show going. Some amazing work as always. Nice to hear you are documenting the changes on the Tiger Werkstätte site ... bookmarked already. Had a quick glance there tonight, but I´ll be back for more.

Earlier in the build process I swopped the circular wire hubs for the angular roses from DML6252, which were introduced later than the Leningrad Front according to my references, so that is a mutually satisfactory 'donation'.

Tiger 323 is the one on the left.



Cheers!
