Wow great work on that ambush camo crown, did you use masks or stencil or is it free hand?

So it feels like I'm not making any headway on this build at all but their is just so many parts and so many subassemblies. One thing I don't get is the med kits and two ammo boxes are molded on the floor plates with so so so many parts I don't know why something like them that need to be painted separate is not molded apart. Anyway here's some of the subassemblies King Tiger 6

Thanks for looking

Clint: Looks like you're making great progress to me. I wouldn't worry too much about it, once the subassemblies come together it will really start to look like a tank.

And not sure I'd even worry too much about painting the severate parts, if you're going to close her up or have figures in the hatches you won't be able to see much down in there.

Thanks Gamera, I'm making a cutaway build so as much of the interior as possible will be shown.

Nick: She looks fantastic! 

Only issue I have is I think the insides the hatches were the same colour as the exterior of the tank. I'm not totally sure of this, you might want to ask around.

Clint here you go.

Gamera yes according to the instructions its white but if you noticed that the spare tracks are put together wrong the lower flats of the track should be showing so take them off fix them weather them and put back on the turret

Ah ok, I'd go with the instructions over some random dude on the internet too... Wink

Interesting, I didn't know about the lower part of the tracks being backwards. Good luck!

 

And really nice work there on the figures!!

The colour for the gun is correct, it was just the inside of the turret hatchs that were the same as the outside. The lighter colour inside helped to see inside the dark interior but you wouldn't want bright white hatches to give you away.

No, it was the case right from the start. And the camo uniforms were only for the SS. The black was used right to the end by the army and SS in some cases.

Thanks for them shots those figures look great. I didn't catch the hatches being white. I don't think I would change it at this point.

Nick: Fantastic build and the camo is a real beauty.
