My aim is to build 3 tamiya tigers as close as possible to the real ones
I will start with asking you about the one i have already built
is the one of the abt.505 that tamiya gives it as n.214
is built and painted in the yellow/brown but not numbered or weathered so i think
1-i will have to hide somehow the 5th feeding point on the rear deck
2-is the tamiya tiger sprocket wheel correct?
3 would i get the correct tiger if i add the turret links ?
4-is anything else i need to know to get it right?
5-is this tiger i got on the internet correct to try to follow its built
