Dragon 1/35th scale King Tiger Battle of the Bulge
Here is my first article. Built back in 2006, this is my favorite German WWII armored vehicle. Built with aftermarket barrel, tracks, figures and fenders. Always liked this pattern, slightly different with the hard edge finish. All questions, comments and critiques are welcome. Take care my fellow modelers!

Welcome to the site, Jim (hope that thing doesn't fall on ya). 🙂
Thanks Craig! My software skills need work
Three of the five photos are up side down in my neck of the woods. The brown color is this a primer that was painted at the factory and in order to conserve paint they left it as is and then added the green and yellow? The model looks solid ...just up side down.
Thanks Stephen, my computer skills need work! The red brown was meant to represent the red oxide primer applied at the factory.
Congratulations Jim. Awesome Tiger!
Thanks John, I will be posting more in the future.
Welcome on board, Jim - and that's a very nice camo scheme! I took the liberty of rotating the upside-down pictures, gives the Tiger more traction 😉
Thanks again Boris! My software skills need improvement. How did you correct them?
Great Tiger with superb camo!
Thank you Jeffry, I found that camo pattern in a book titled "Panzers of the Ardennes offensive 1944-45"
Excellent King Tiger! Battle of Bugle or Bulge?
Nice looking Tiger, Jim, there's a "Year of the Cat" group build currently running on this site, this would be a great entry.
Thanks to everyone for all the positive, and informative feedback. Besides my computer skills in need to proofread before I post! Look forward to sharing more in the future and seeing what my fellow modelers contribute.
Thanks for that reminder George. I have a few cats that I can enter.
Looks great Jim! Agree that it is a great scheme, and your build and weathering look excellent. Welcome aboard.
