Thanks Carlos. This is what happens when your teenaged son wants all of the cool parts. Lol!

He loves it. That's what matters.

I built the initial production version as a Tunisia Tiger and it assembled properly.

Somewhere I have a photo of a "disassembled" Tiger that my late F-I-L took in Tunisia in late 42/ early 43. In the album under the photo he wrote "Jerry Tank".

Thank you very much for the compliments, gentlemen. I didn't go all the way with this paint scheme and to my eyes it shows. But it should have some rather nice shelf presence now, mixed in with Jr's video games and other collectables.

So thank you! The feedback is nice.

Pictures are now missing from most of this thread, but I've uploaded a few I don't think I've uploaded before. I don't see them here. I completed this one last summer.

In the end, I simulated a late war color pallette. Darker colors seemed to really make this build look meaner.

Looks good Mike. Very much at home in the woods setting... now you just need a platoon of Shermans led to by Fury to duel with your Tiger. Wink

I lost a bunch of my old photos on Photobucket, guess I should look into retaking and reposting some of my stuff too.
