I finally managed to make pictures of the King Tiger that I built over a year ago. It was inspired by the great model made by Dimitry Kiyatkin and available in gallery displayed on Missing Lynx. Just like him, I used this model as an opportunity to play with the "boring yellow camo" .

Sean,

nice to see some of your works. I like the look you achieved on this model and am going to go look at your website to see if I can learn anything.

Cool model.

Sean,

You can be satisfied with your redemption becuase the big cat looks good. Have you ever showed this model to Dimitry?, I am sure he would be glad to take a look at it.

Well done
Lu

Thanks, Lu. I don't think that my model is in the same league as the one that inspired me. Even if I was brave enough to show it to him, I don't have his contact info .

Hi Sean, Luciano Rodriguez e-mailed me and pointed out your Tiger. I missed it in my web surveillance this week. I think it is very well done. The yellow is quite varied, which I think is the key. May I say that I would also use a darker brown color for at least some of the scratches - yours seem a little to silver/gray to me, but it may be just the photos.
Awesome work and I am very humbled that you were inspired by my model. I hope my write up was useful to you, but honestly, with the abundance of excellent stuff being posted online, the hobby is growing to new heights every day.
Best regards,
Dmitry

Thanks Dimitry. I'm glad you like my tribute to your model .

Thanks for the tip. Now I know that using silver/gray for scratches was a mistake. Next time it will be definitively a dark brown pencil.

Thanks again. I really appreciate it.
