Tiger Tank and loading crew
August 22, 2015 in Armor
I have begun doing figures. This is one of my first efforts to practice painting figures. The Tiger is a Tamiya 1/35 kit Early production. The commander came with a Tank crew set, and the others with a loading crew set, all Tamiya kits. I used Model Master Enamels and Painted by hand, with Vallejo washes, and MIG pigments for weathering effects. This is the famous “Das Reich” Tank with the Kanji character inverted for good luck. The story goes the Tank Commander’s fiance gave him a signet ring with that Kanji on and he had it painted on the tank.
