Well that's it for the Pics.
I am lucky, I had a lot of detail parts left over from my Trumpeter Panzer IV and King Tiger builds posted on this site.
I used the pioneer tools cables and a lot of other stufffrom the spare parts box.
This has been a very challenging build, because Hobby Boss has left out a lot and simplified a lot more. IN MY OPINION is ( If you have this kit and want a challenging build, go for it. If you don't, I wouldn't recommend it)

Ok I have had my say, go jump all over me.

Looks amazing and the photos don't convey the raw size of the model!

Well done sir!

I just started mine. Your thread has been EXTREMELY useful so far. I also watched a youtbube video of a build . He did one correction I didnt see on yours. The odd shapped piece in btwn the exhaust housings had the holes drilled out. I believe this is where they stuck the crank to start. But ordering items to match what you did shortly.

The pics all seem to vanish after a while, I hope this helps.

Thanks for reposting the images. I only saw this build now. You did a marvelous job on the Tiger I This kit just became available locally for a cheap price but... I think I'll pass haha. You made a lot of modifications to bring this up to a reasonable standard... and I don't think I have the skills or patience to do so haha
