Takom King Tiger Porsche turret - WIP
Posted by DutchLegend on Saturday, April 21, 2018 4:31 PM

Hello everyone,

I got this King Tiger for my birthday last month.

A deep box with lots of plastic, PE and decals!!

Started assembling the lower hull. I kept the most sub-assemblys aside for painting.

Here are the sub-assemblys, ready to get some paint on them (i forgot to make pictures after the painting process!!)

And this is how far i got tonight, thanks for watching!!

Gr Marco

Wow this is really cool, are you going to do a cut away build with it?

Yes indeed, i forgot to mention that it is probably going to be a cutaway project!

Wow, I love those boxes just stuffed full of goodies!!! 

A cut-away sounds awesome with all that detail. Great job!

ello everyone,

Finally got the engine done today! 

 I don't know yet how i'm gonna do the cutaway exactly, but to be sure i cut off a piece of the exaust and replaced with a piece of hollow pipe (piece of Q-tip).

 Engine primed and ready for painting!

 Paint and pigments are still a bit wet on these pictures (they now look way less orange!)

And this is what it looks like with the engine installed (still some minor touchups to do, where i scraped off the paint getting the engine in).

Oh and i also installed the floorplate:

Up next: the radio and a lot of shells!!

Thanks for watching!

Gr Marco

Yowza!  That is a pretty involved build, and you are knocking it out of the park!  Definitely going to keep my eye on this one.

Dwayne or Dman or just D.  All comments are welcome on my builds.
