Hello!
I'm presenting my work on 1/35 Dragon Tiger I Late with Normandy scheme-that of Will Fey (number 134) from 1/. SS Schw.Pz.abt 102
Now the panzer is painted, but I will post the previous steps one by one
Voyager set 35179 is used, and also will replace the DS tracks with AFV Club ones.

Some figures will be added after all the painting and weathering











Cheers!

So; where's the standard antenna storage tube?

Hi, David!
What do you mean? I don't think that there should be such for this particular vehicle, it's not included in the kit either, nor shown in the variants in the instruction (although I don't rely much on it). The only picture I've found is of the front of the tank. But maybe I'm wrong

Cheers!

Very nice job so far, when I eventually restart my tiger build this is the paint scheme I will be going for

Thanks! It's really a very attractive camouflage.

Next the Olive green and Rotbraun/Shokobraun. I've used 2-3 different tones for some variation, painting is free hand with Iwata HP-CS:

Aaah, yes, now I understand what you've mean, was thinking of something different .
Well, the truth is that I've forgot that tube and will paint it separately. I hope it will not contrast with the rest of the camouflage so much.
By the way I thought that this is some kind of lever, thanks for clarification!

Cheers!

I'm working on that Tiger for several months,so now I'm at the decals, they're put on with the help of Microsol. No problems laying them on the zimmerit
Also ready are the tools, some other small things should be painted and next is filter, washes etc.









Cheers!

Yes,it's very nice kit.
The only things that I don't like are the DS tracks and some work will be needed to remove the zimmerit under the exhausts and add such below them.

Agama metals. How'd those work out for you? I've seen them once before and they have a very nice effect.

Looking forward to seeing more of the build; it already looks fantastic.

Hi, I use Agama metals mainly for chipping or to simulate worn to metal effect, like on the edge of the shovel, axe, hammer f.ex. They're polishing type of paints and are good also for brass shells, gold parts etc.

Adding a filter, made with mixing light ochre and brown one, about 3:1 (although I don't like ratios). This is for unifying the colors a bit. Almost unnoticeable on the pictures, but there's difference. And I didn't want a heavy coat, just a little bit change.

Archer Fine Transfers makes a set of Balkenkreuzen for Zimmerit surfaces that work quite well.

Thanks, I will have that in mind for the next zimmerit-coated vehicle.

The handles for most of the tools were made out of Bakelite. Thus not wood. Hope this helps in your next adventure.

Trevor, do you have some documentation for that? I have the pick axe, shovel and ax handles as made of wood, though often painted (green?).

Actually Mig's 'AMMO' brand has a color for a terracotta colored bakelite in the new tools set. It's called something different on the site but the box shows it as bakelite.

I personally don't have any documentation but I just found out about it last night and think its odd that it's come up twice in twelve hours and it adds some credibility to it. I'm sure late war bakelite was a lot less labor intensive than milling a stick into a durable tool handle.

Well, that's interesting, is there any proof for bakelite handles? But maybe I will leave them wooden.
