A real oldie here, but I’m reprocessing some pics as a little self inspiration for a bit of a cunning 1/48th Tiger project I hope to start later this year.
Anyway until then here’s the 1/48th late Tiger1 by Skybow, now manufactured and sold by AFV Club. Really a great kit, easy to assemble and with plenty of detail, when it was originally released it was one of the best of the “new” 1/48th kits and even now holds up very well.
Looking at it now there’s things I’d do differently finish wise. Certainly I’d either replace the band tracks, which were the kits only real weak point, or certainly do a better job of mounting them. I’ve adapted/improved the way I fix my tracks now and I was cutting new ground when I built this. Also the overall wash is a little dark for my tastes now. Certainly there’s a current modelling trend to have more contrast and the lighter areas would be more apparent with the techniques I use now.
Anyway, enough blathering, on with the pics already ……
And a few wip pics …….
