TIGER 1 MkV1(Late) . MY FIRST BUILD

Postby builder76 » Fri Sep 01, 2017 6:07 pm

I recently came across in storage this build. This was the first model that I built after about 50 year gap. :)
It represented my return to modelling. The Tamya kit appealed to me from the point of detail and cost.
I purchased various books on AFV`s ,Building/painting weathering etc and decided to educate myself into this new world of model building. ;)
I decided that I would try to experiment with as much as possible with all the forms of weathering kits, paints, ageing &battle damage ideas. A tank thats at the end of its life in ...battle terms. As well as using for the first time my new Iwata airbrush. 8-)
As this version of the Tiger used a Zimmerit coating on the body I purchased a Photo etch kit by Eduard to aid realism and to replace some parts with more realistic ones.( a metal barrel for example).
I hope my fellow modellers will not mind me posting this model with all its many & various faults. But it represents to me a return to hobby that has to date, given many hours of pleasure and creativity, and has enabled me to share my hobby with others, particularly, those of you in Part Works. :angelic-sunshine:

Regards
John
ps I hope I have posted this in the right place as its not my best ..!!!! :oops:
