Wow
Looking at all the superb models built by highly talented modellers makes me feel like firing myself out of an Schwerer Gustav

Here is my humble entry for the GB....

PzKpfw VI Tiger by iflytb20, on Flickr

Orange Box edition of the Tiger 1 (with that hard taskmaster Oberleutnant Minion)

The Kit. Even though the box is a bit shabby as compared to mainline Dragon kits, they do provide the DS tracks in a protective cardboard packing enabling the survival of the teeth. A real shame as I won't be using them

The AM items that I will be using. Decals for the Strolch, Copper towing cables and AFV Club tracks.

Please stay tuned for updates and thanks for looking

Hi, FJ officer is ready, this time in tropical uniform. For trousers I used Vallejo Desert yellow, for the shirt-Dark sand.







Cheers!

Jose,
Looking good! Does the kit have raised detail?

Gaz



Not any more!!! The putty and sanding would have removed any evidence of that.

A lot of work Jose, but I'm sure it was worth it.

Yes, Bryan. It was precisely Angel's idea. Miniart have released great models with equipment. In addition, the Takom's crane (Takom 2108 oder Takom 2109) allows you to make a working one.
Very good work with color modulation and with the equipment of the crew compartment.
Good luck, Bryan!

Thanks Zon. I use .05 diameter styrene rod for most wiring. The slightly thicker and the thin stuff coming off the headphones is copper wire.
Kalin are you going to have the crane lifting the turret on the interior panther? I always thought that would be a cool dio.

Gaz, Marc, Zon and Peter, thanks for the nice comments.
Gaz, I have another Panther model with an interior plus a crane. Оne friend of mine, Angel Yovtshev, gave me the idea to make place for repair of damaged machines, where the elements of the Panther will be visible. So that ...
Zon, I use metallizers "Mr.Metal Color" on GSI Creos and I am very pleased with them.

Good luck to all.

Kalin,
That is a fantastic interior! Seems a shame to close it up.

Thank you for sharing it with us!

Great Work Stefan and Jose!!

Bryan: Nice interior. What did you use for the wiring?

Kalin: brilliant interior! What colors did you use for the ammunition? I've only found a bright brass, but it's too shiny.

Happy Modeling,
Zon

A lot of good builds in this campaign. Looks like all are enjoying it.
I don’t see me building an interior kit anytime soon after seeing Kalin’s work And Colin’s cut away thread. I would shelve it.
Carry on

Hello everyone!
After more than a month I can boast of my work progress. I close the hull and follow the turret of the tank.
Here are some photos.












So much of me. Good luck to all.

Stefan, that camo is spot on. You really have an eye for it. Did you use some technique like masking, or how did you do it?

Another update on the Wespe. I am close to finished with the interior. As usual I may have gone a little "chipping happy" but its all good. Will start on the exterior soon. Here are some pics.
The vehicle I will be modeling:








Keep up the great work everyone!!
