That's some nice work! I love the smashed-up muffler guards.

Hello, The mufflers guards are original plastic one. I used Dremel tool with sending stone to thin the plastic down from inside. I grind the plastic to the point that it some places the sending stone burned through these guargs.Tthat's how i got the damage looking guards..Smile

Hello All,

Tiger is ready. I change my mind and painted the model white. Modulated with oils. I give a metal look to the tracks with Dark Steel pigment.

Really like the weathering you did with this vehicle but I do have a concern.  I see this alot from other modelers where they really beat up the exhaust covers to demo battle damage as with yours.  It seems to me such damage could not be confined to just the covers.  The rear fenders nor the intake air filter covers are not damaged nor is there any secondary damage (splinter) to the rear armor or the items I just mentioned. 

I am not being nic picky or complaining. I have only completed a few armor pieces which non have any damage.  I was just wondering how much consideration modelers make as what type of ammunition that did the damage and it collateral effects.  I can't believe a near miss by a arterlley shell would have such an narrow scatter pattern.

Again love your work.  I been wanting to take on a Tiger I that seen alot of combat on the eastern front and taken much directed and collateral damage.

I'm certainly no expert but she looks pretty friggin' good to me. I wish I could get one of mine to turn out that well. Yes

Yes, Ser. You're right I should spread the damage wider on other rear parts of the tank.

I must confess the damage on the exhaust covers happened .....accidentally :)

These are original parts from the kit. They were to thick so I tried to thinned it down with my Dremel tool with sending stone...and I burned through...well... I kind of like the damage so I left it the way you see it now. :)

Wow, that is excellent!  Weathering is spot on as far I am concerned.  The muffler damage is very convincing.  Sometimes mistakes end up being a bonus.  I would be happy to have that in my display case.
