Tiger II

  • move
My version of a King Tiger, I started with the King Tiger of Tamiya (35164) and I added a set of photo-etch from Voyager, a metal barrel, tracks from Tamiya (35165), Alpine figurines and some scratch parts. The model was painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with interactive AK products, oil paint and pigments. The figurines were painted with Vallejo acrylic, and the base is made of brick and natural products.

Excellent overall display Luc! As previously stated the weathering is great and very convincing as seen around the cupola. I like the way you've placed the elements in the display angeling the turret in relation to the road. I always think the base is as important as the finished piece. Outstanding sir.

Thank you for the comment ,I appreciate it I always try to present a model in a natural environment as realistic as possible and from a dynamic angle.

Nicely done Lucas! I really like that you remembered to mask where the side fenders would have been. The commander figure is top-notch!

Thank you for your comment, I always try to follow a logic with the assembly of each model and to follow the original idea

a fabulous build and an excellent diorama, the ground work is well executed indeed. my only crumble is the black edge of the diorama as it draws your eye away from it and I find it a little distracting but I guess you chose that to tie in with the badge on the lower left part of the base. well done mate

Thanks for the comment, yes it was to separate the diorama from the base that I used the black band, but I did not realize that it caused a distraction, I take good note of it for my next project.

As with everybody else - great job!!! Could you give us some pointers about how you did the "ambush" camo?? Again absolutly superb!

I painted the camo by freehand with an Iwata hp-ch 0. 3mm airbrush, then I painted the dots with a brush with very diluted paint for the barrel I used a camo mask.
