Recently, Todd Michalak had the opportunity to have a little fun with Tamya''s Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H kit in 1/48 scale. He shares his build story for this feature.

Thank you very much Dustin! Only problem I see now is that I want more of these 1/4 scale beasts!

I understand that!

I ordered some more models the other day from Amazon.

In my haste, I accidentally ordered a 1/48th Tiger 1 early production. I was disappointed when I seen it, but it'll give me a good opportunity to practice painting/weathering.

Nice!! Have fun with the new arrivals! You are correct...the mis-buy is a perfect opportunity to play around! You never know, it may turn out to be something special! I have had just as much fun with a 20 year old DML kit as with a $70 one. Side by side it is tough to tell really...especially when making wrecks...LOL!!

Todd, You have done a great job with this. I am sure it will inspire many to at least dip into 1/48 armor.

Cheers,
Rick

Not a big fan of the smaller stuff, but this one grabbed my attention. Very well executed and convincing looking battle worn veteran.0

Lovely build & paint job Todd; it reminds me a great deal of Mig's 1/48 winter Tiger I that I saw on the web a couple of years ago.

Thank you very much Bill! I remember Mig's Tiggy well! A fantastic piece! I believe it still resides on his Blog!
