Tamiya 1/35 Tiger 1 Early Production
I built this a while ago but thought I might show it off here as I’m now in my fourth week of sanding, filling and filing my attempt at the Airfix Vulcan.
Having never built any 1/35 armour when I was younger and after being not so subtly advised that Innis would quite like a Tiger I started to make plans for the setting. I was fairly sure that the build would be fairly trouble free and, indeed it was. I just fancied a winter scene and something related to the railway.
The only addition to the build were a metal barrel as I flattened one side a bit taking the seam out on the kit one. The tracks were MiniArt Russian Gauge and the Crew were also Miniart Winter Tank crew.
I used Precision Ice and Snow Krycell to simulate the winter scene. The winter camo was distressed using hairspray. I’m fairly chuffed with the way it came out and have include a couple of work in progress shots to show the track.
This was a lot of fun. The wee man fell in love with it and it now sits in a place of honour in his cabinet.
Who knows it may not be the last armour I do.
