Pz.Kpfw. VI Königstiger
« on: August 06, 2014, 09:58:14 PM »
While the Albatros is drying I started a new one. It's an Eduard's King Tiger which is basically an Academy kit with a small Eduard photo etched sheet. But, as always, I'm not satisfied with the box so I got two more photo etched sheets with the model and a Brassin MG.

Most probably I will put the big cat on some kind of small diorama, I allready have some ideas but first thing first, let we see what do we have in all those big and small boxes. First the King Tiger.

The work on this big cat started. I started with the hull, suspension section first. It's great, with minimum plus work you can position the road wheels in any position you wish ! I didn't make any variations I just made it flat, this is how it will be fitted on my diorama.

And here comes the first surprise. When putting together the lower hull with the upper hull section you need to put two pieces of simple flat plastic between the two hulls above the track. And what did Academy ? Well the upper non visible halves of these parts are flat like glass but the visible sides have pin marks all over the surface !!  :-wall :-wall :-wall
So here comes putty and sanding....

And finally I put together the two hulls. I started with the front and made a perfect connection which is amazing
