1/35 Kingtiger Henschel Turret
Posted by Van on Tuesday, June 06, 2017 2:51 PM

Hello to you All!

This model is taking so long to finish it. It's ready to throw some primer and paint on it. Dragon kit nr6254. It's going to be in winter cammo. I added zimmerit, some brass, Karaya tow cables and other metal parts from Eduard. The rear fenders are scratch build. exhaust pipes are made from brass pipes. I addedMetal tracks and some battle damage. :)

Some great work there! And I too like those scratchbuilt fenders- even better if it's an excuse to buy cookies.

Hi Everuone,

Some updates:ash

Dark Shadow panel line wash was applied all over the model. After it dryed out I wiped off the excess using cotton buds.

Working with pigments. Before the wheels went on some EU Brown Earth pigmnet was applied on the hull and wheels. The metal effect on the wheels where done with buffable IRON color from MR.METAL COLOR.

Tracks so far are painted with Steel color from ALCLAD. Then I applied with brush Vallejo wash Sepia Shade. Ther will be more shades added to the tracks usng oil paints.

Hello,

The tracks are on temporally. I want to se how do they look. There are some fresh rust spots from oil paint. I used a pallet of yellow, red, brown oil paint. Tracks whettering will continue. The last photo is from Bovington Tank Museum in UK. I went there to see the Tiger Collection. Outstanding work.
