Königstiger nr. 233 in Budapest 1:72 Revell
Posted by AdamKozlowski on Wednesday, December 13, 2017 7:52 AM

Hi!

My second tank ever, I've builded it based on reference photo. Unfortunately, I couldn't get right decals, so they are stock, but historically correct.

Zimmerit was done by hand, in Green Stuff.

Hope you'll like it!

Tremendous work. It looks like its a 1/35 scale instead of 1/72. Great job.

Your second tank kit!?! Wow, I buried my first five or so in a hole in the yard so no-one would ever see them! 

Outstanding work! I too would have assumed she were 1/35th if you hadn't stated otherwise!

Thin Green Stuff. Pattern done with help of self-made tool from compass wheel. I just had to pick up wheel with right grooves and the rest was easy job. Just roll.

Great build! Especially for a second armor model. Also, when you say green stuff, do you mean the 2 part epoxy like kneadatite. The type you mix together and feels like playdoh. And if it was like kneadatite, did you flatten it out along surfaces of the tank, then use the roller over it?

Yes, two-part epoxy putty called "Green Stuff". I've flattened and put on armor.  Then, I flattened it more rolling with small bottle or something similar, but round. When it was thin enough, it was time to make pattern. When Green Stuff is dry, you fan peel some off to simulate damage.
