Ralph,

Are you one very fast modeller or have you been closeted for a while? ... you are making a very quick carrer here and forging a solid reputation too. Congrats on your beautifdul Tiger. I wonder what other surprises you have there for us...

Good work amigo.
Lu

Great looking Tiger; I should try one someday since you speak well of it and yours looks so good.

Do you ever sleep? JS-2, Firefly and now a Tiger, all in the time it's taken me to build one model (and it's still not finished).
But once again, it's a lovely job. I know sweet FA about Axis tanks, but this really looks the biz.

Regards,

John.

Ralph,

this is a lovely done kit, and shows some really retrained painting and weathering...the kit comes alive with it....very well done Ralph. Your putting us all to shame but don't stop it mate.
Kind regards
Doug

Ralph,

You did a great job on your Tiger I! The paint job and weathering are first rate. One would have a hard time believing that is a 1/48 kit, and OOB too! Very nice job Ralph! Oh, by the way, great photography as well. Edward

Thanks Gents. No - not an insomniac. This one's an attempt from some years ago that's been collecting dust on the shelf. That said, building OOB does help the production rate. Cheers, Ralph.

G'day Ralph
I just love your Tiger,a very subtle build. Well done to you!
One question, how do you get your photos so clear! I struggle with mine and it frustrates me so!
Cheers to you.

Hi Ralph!

It is always good to see that kind of finish. BTW, in these pics the model looks far bigger than 1/48th! Good work!

Regards!
Alvaro
