It is a premium edition of Porsche Tiger with a lot of photo-etched parts. I made it from February to March 2014.
Last time I made Zimmerit Coating pre-molded King Tiger. I would like to make a coating by myself after a long time, I choose this Porsche Tiger. By the way, Last night Figure skating at the 2014 Winter Olympics – Men’s singles were amazing, I had been looking till the morning after all.
Lion Roar’s coating stamp, the appearance is smart but as an industrial commodity inaccurate. This stamps fitting with the shaft is not good, unmatched sized. It may be only my purchased one, I’m not sure. Slightly regrettable, although it is useful without shaft.
I failed. The left caterpillar position is too high and it hits to a fender. I cannot make it further unless adjusted it.
The slack condition of the caterpillar is considerably pleasing, and my mind did not turn to that position.
I corrected it as a sprocket wheel and caterpillar were shifted downward somehow, and the fender is now fitting in. Part of the front caterpillar parts is removed once and attached again. These photo-etched parts are fairly good.
Zimmerit pre-molded kit is an easy and regular pattern, it looks good. But coating by myself is also good, a place the coating peeling and unevenness emphasize handmade taste.
(Real tank Zimmerit was coated in the factory, I suppose.)
Gepackkasten (toolbox) fastener photo-etched parts assemble was required quite fine works. It’s too small and my eyes hurt… After Gepackkasten attached, I’m afraid I can’t see the reserve caterpillar which is a really good accent.
I noticed in the photo from just beside, the epoxy putty which has overflowed into the lower side of the gun turret is not shaved exactly, appearance is bad so I’ll remove them out later.
Since I’m working while looking at slant angle, careful about the upper side but not lower edge.
Last time I used the Hornet resin headset and I liked it. This time continues to use them. The right tank crew, the sleeve interfered with the hatch when the hand was put on it. I adjust the sleeve shape. I tried to make the shape of the skull mark of garrison cap.
Maybe because of the lighting, the cloth of the garrison cap looks thick but not so much actually… I have to fill in the gap of the neck. These days everyday cold in Tokyo….. Not having felt the painting. I would like to make small AFV and placed with this big Porsche Tiger.
I feel it’s a good color after I coordinate white balance. Assembling and painting photo cannot do a fresh start. Dark yellow, dark green, red-brown, these 3 colors, I painted a little brighter than the original bottle and adjust the brightness later.
It’s warm today and I can open my window and painting this model, but cedar pollinosis is serious for me now…..
I sometimes painted caterpillar tracks by airbrush, but this time by brush. A work procedure was changed for a feeling at that time in various ways.
It seems the vehicle number decal should have been attached a little upper position, but I think this is the best even it’s different from the instruction.
Will I say it’s the Oakleaf pattern camouflage? It’s an autumn version jacket. The base color is Tamiya flat earth, It may be a four-colored constitution, but if I put another one color and good atmosphere, it ends and finish up.
German army encountered with the Russian high-performance tank in the Eastern Front when the battle opened. German approached by the development of the heavy tank which was more powerful than a mark IV tank. Porsche and Henschel competed for the heavy tank development competition and Henshel won it.
At least two tanks seemed to be fully deployed. I think these two had no great success. There were around 90 machine parts which produced halfway were switched to Ferdinand and Elephant heavy tank destroyer.
The above crew has red hair and this captain has blond, not captain, maybe second lieutenant. It’s detailed point, I made a periscope lens colored dark green, and covered gloss clear, I’m satisfied with it.
Gun turret is turned to back, it’s moving position. It’s a German heavy tank and some points are same as the last King Tiger, but many different processes, It’s happy modeling all round.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
