King Tiger with Porsche Turret and zimmerit
Last Christmas I got the Takom King Tiger kit with full interior from my wife (talk about real love, giving your old man toys for Christmas).
When I opened the box, I realized that this is probably way over my skill level but as it was a gift I started on it none the less. The build started sometime in January and I have just finished it. I took me probably 150+ hours and I learned a lot from this build. It is the first time I have tried chipping fluid and I also invested in some metal tracks from MasterClub that where a pain to assemble but gives a realistic sag to the tracks.
To be able to show off the interior I decided not to glue the top of the tank and the top of the turret. As it fits well together I’ll keep it like this to keep the inside free from dust.
Thank you for watching.
