King Tiger project
King Tiger Production turret project:
I recently got to meet Lemmy (of Motorhead) and our conversation included Tamiya kits. As he did't have a King Tiger in his collection I offered to build him one. This Tamia 1993 model will be the base kit. Updates when it arrives.
OK Kit arrived and the RB barrel too. With research scratch additions have been made: Front lamp cable was added using wire. Front MG barrel replaced with Dragon version. Bolts added on exhaust guards. Handle added to wooden block. Pin added to exhaust (right).
The first weathering stage is complete. Tried a new idea by adding Mig pigments all over before the first coat of varnish. Not bad. The front fender shows some scratch additions that are missing on the original model.
