Hi folks,

I usually build 1:35th scale olive drab. Just thought it was time for a change.
So here goes my Tamiya Tiger I and some color modulation.













The turret isn´t done yet. It wasn´t painted yet just for comparrison.

Cheers
Gunnar

Gunnar,

Welcome to the forum and to 1/48th scale nitche.

I am glad to see more and more modellers give 1/48th sclae a try month by month and particularly my hapines is double if when it comes to talk of ambitious paintworks like the one you are making here. The modulation is not easy to command (I envy you for that ) but seeing the sequence you posted there it seems you have it under control totally. Now I am curious about the final result, so please keep us posted with your progress.

Great beginning.
Lu

I'm not a fan of the painted hatches as they seem too stark, but that's more my opinion on the modulation method in general. I think your tank will be a winner. The build has some good extra details that really show. Look forward to the finish

The cupola did not rotate. Should be here, with one slit at center forward:

I didn´t know that! I really thought this thing "could" rotate!
So there you have it, when a guy from the Olive drab side builds a Tiger!!
So could we keep this little error as our secret, please. No one will know right?!

But I´m not changing this right now, if you don´t mind, as it would ruin the paint job for sure.

Thanks very much for helping me to learn mor eon the Tiger Tank. You´ve helped me out on my 35th scale cat already to great effect!

Have a nice day and thanks for looking
Gunnar

You are being very kind to welcome me to the 48th scale forum. Thanks for that.
I´m really glad you like my kitty so far, as I´m only a beginner in this scale. But I really love it.

Let´s see how it all develops.

Thanks again Luciano
Gunnar

I´m really glad that you respond to this although you don´t like the color modulation so much.
This is inspiring to hear. That´s why I like ML.

Thanks again
Gunnar
