KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 BOX-ART PACKAGE This kit is quite a reasonable price for this manufacturer’s model. They may have been trying to break up with their rivals. At that time, new manufacturers were releasing various kits one after another after Dragon lost its focus on military plastic models.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 MAKING PARTS PROBLEM The problem with the assembly is that when parts C3 and C4 are installed, the suspension arm is bent. When I put it together temporarily, it looked like there was such a danger. Even if I wind a track, it doesn’t touch the ground properly, so it’s the worst. I will only use the place to hold the idler wheel at the end and not use the rest.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 MAKING I was impressed by the hole of the coating sheet on the part where the spare tracks are attached. If I say that, the deck seal of the ship may be more impressive.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 MAKING The parts that failed on the Zimmerit Coating sheet are gray and stand out now, but I don’t think it bothers me that much once it’s painted. I’ll fix it with putty a little.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 MAKING I was amazed by the injection plastic color of this Meng Model King Tiger oxide red. As for the runners with different colors, I remember the white runner of Tamiya 8 ton half-track figure and the black runner of the 1/144 F-14 Revell.

The injection head doesn’t seem to nice mold. There is no problem because he is looking at the other side with binoculars. It’s hard to paint his face if I built like this.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 PAINTING First of all, I blew a black surfacer for base paint.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 PAINTING I was at a loss of how to proceed with camouflage painting this time. In the end, I use a black base, dark yellow, red-brown and dark green are blown with an airbrush. I don’t do much layering. I think the saturation is a little high, but I will fine-tune it later.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 FINISHED PHOTO The Meng Model Kingtiger is completed. The Dragon Kingtiger Henschel turret that I made before had the fender and the spare caterpillar removed, so this time I made a vehicle with all the fenders and caterpillars keeping with the body.

The number prepared is 334, so it is the tank number 4 of the 3rd platoon of the 3rd company. I put the decal on the shiny base and then blow the matte clear, so it was good that silvering was suppressed even on the uneven surface.

Next time, add water-soluble wood glue dissolved in a little more water. I have a coating sheet for the Porsche turret, so I will try it if I have a chance.

KING TIGER HENSCHEL TURRET MENG MODEL 1/35 FINISHED PHOTOThe Meng Model Kingtiger is required to care about road wheels. But the price is much better than other recent kits, so I hope the Meng Model will sell them for a long time. It must be hard because many manufacturers will enter the market for popular tanks like Kingtiger.
