Tiger Tank-1 Mid Production (Pt1 Hull)

Post by Guest on 19/5/2010, 23:57

Well here I am highlighting my build on a TIGER-1 tank. I thought when I bought this model I will be challenged That has turned out to be very true.........
Let me explain. This will be the eighth model that I have built. Not only this but it also includes a total interior, hull and turet.
When I started this I was very apprehensive to say the least. But now I have started it, it seems just like any other model. What I did find is the plans were not as easy as I first thought
Enough of my ramblings............ This is the build

Tiger Mk1 Mid Production.
Weight 56.9 tons
Main Armament 1 X 88mm
Crew 5 man
Performance 38km/h (23mph) Road, 20km/h (12mph) Cross country

The thing that has got me in awe is the amount of wheels......48 plus 2 idler and 2 drive sprokets.
If you put this into context a chieftain has 24 wheels plus 2 ideler + 2 drive sprokets.


Out of the box!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hull



Wheels!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Hull interior painted



Steering and front gearbox



Engine 01



Engine 02



Interior before engine installed



Interior with engine installed



Interior engine, front gearbox, floor plate, Air filters, radiators and fans installed



This is "zimmerit" The purpose of this was to give an uneven surface so that sticky mines could not adhere to it. I tried verious methods to apply it, putty, modeling clay. I couldn't get them to work, they kept cracking or not sticking. So i got my "Dremel" out and carved them
I will post updates as soon as I get them.

now where was it, on one of the miniature sites they had a guide to doing zimmerit, you thought of using 'green stuff'? works well and you can vary the amount of hardener used so it dries slowly.

must post some pics of the model I'm working on now
