King Tiger Part 4 - The End

Norton Wood

172 views

To end off...

 

The Tank has obviously gone for airbrushing, as I finished last time I'd just applied the sand base coat. Following this, I began by painting the Green and following that the Brown, very easily carried out. Following this, I painted the dot's using a small brush using the 3 colours - beginning with sand, Green then Brown. In that pattern. I think the result was brilliant. 

 

Following this I gave the model the gloss coat, following that I applied the decals to the model which took all of 30 minutes, course after I applied the Matt coat which finalized the model, which is not shown here but it has been done, trust me on that one. 

 

Finally... It's done and on display, before finishing I thought I'd put them next to my brothers Panzer V Panther & Panzer VI Tiger I, so to show the German development of the tank range...quite impressive really. 

 

Glad to finish another project. 

 

Thanks

Tom

That's turned out well - you should be pleased. Very much 1945, desperately waiting for the end!

 

Interesting collection of other vehicles. I know little about British tanks, but did build an AFV club Centurion MkV once as I was brought up near Leyland where many of them were made. I wondered if that's what is on the right at the back in the last pic. It's a great kit when you've finished, but the fineness of the detail I found quite a struggle.

Thank you, I thought it turned out well, my collection consists of a Male mkV, Female MkIV, Whippet Medium A, Churchill MkVII, Sherman M4A3E8 Fury, King Tiger (Tiger II), Centurion & Chieftain Mk9. I've recently given the Centurion & Churchill VII away and brought in a SAS Jeep & LRDG Truck. 

 

But now turned my attention to an LNER Quint set which I'm now waiting for them to tip up
