TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 BOX PACKAGEI’m going to build this Italeri Tiger I. The mold isn’t so sharp and precise, assemble easily and soon to get into the painting process.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGThe parts runners are in a box just as it is. It’s ITALERI way that the plastic bags aren’t used.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGNot completely build the box of the chassis, there is a part to assemble while checking the fit of some parts. It was not too difficult.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGTurret inside of parts is an expression that stands out half like a relief.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGWhile I make wheels, I assemble the gun barrels and other turret parts a little. I needed to be careful not to be the wrong combination of the road wheels, there are many types of wheels.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGI finished the installation of the characteristic rolling wheels. I also mounted one by one track. It is easier to build the Dragon Magic Tracks.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGUnexpectedly, the partial connection caterpillar adjustment is difficult. I changed a delicate curve with my finger. Winding it at once before the adhesive dries.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGI’m waiting for drying road wheels and caterpillar tracks with books as a weight.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGI think that the hard part was over when completed the caterpillar.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGThe positions of the periscopes are different as I see it well. Mistaken. After correcting them, maybe I have no choice but the hatches are closed.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGIn order to adjust the slack of the caterpillar, I used the rounded tissue between the caterpillar and the body.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGSmall parts which are separated by other kits, many Italeri parts are all one mold.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGI felt the tank is a little high.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGSince the accuracy is not good enough, it’s better to assemble first and fill the gaps later.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGI built the main gun turret and all completed.
The United States is confused. Police officer kills a nonresistant black person, a retaliatory strike is received conversely, the order is corrupted. At least I think that for the general sales may be limited to a handgun class. I read something about gun control, the United States of gun ownership seems similar to the fishing rod sense of Japan because it rooted hunting culture. If a fishing rod is prohibited, maybe I’ll be furious.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGI don’t use any etched part this time.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGYes, it seems massive and strong.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 MAKINGBoth hatches are open.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 PAINTINGBecause I express painting detachment, I used hair spray. The base color is black.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 PAINTINGPainted German gray Tamiya acrylic. After that, I blew different tones on a large area.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 PAINTINGPeel the acrylic paint in order to give the chipping effect. I attached to water and scratched randomly on the soft paint surface with a fine tool.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI thought whether it was completed, but somewhat feel awkward. A gun barrel bends a little in the bottom when I see it well. The Tiger-I looks weak.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI’ll fix it with the pouring glue and putty. At this angle, it looks worse. It was bad that I didn’t pay attention well.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKIn the past twice, I put a Tiger in this HP. It’s my first time to build the Tiger I colored in German gray.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe partial connection caterpillar is more difficult assembling than each track caterpillar.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKAfter I attached spare tracks on both sides of a gun turret, I had no place to put decals. So I put the small decals of my spare.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKIf the style of the vehicle number font is round, it’s not a strong image. The Tiger is square-built so I feel a square-built font matches.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI love the shots to apply a gun turret to aside and have taken it in various ways.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe weathering is done in various ways to wipe out a monochrome flat feeling.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKEffect of chipping, peeling off the paint at the beginning is eliminated after too much washing. But weathering until I was satisfied.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI think the bars between the metal wire are cleaning rod, maybe this is made of wood, wrong color.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKThis time, the primer is lacquer, German gray is a water-based paint, washing is mainly enamel paint.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI thought I made too shining metal parts, It becomes good accents of the single color painting.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKSince the included decal sheet was a little yellowed, I changed to Cartograf Decals. This decal is highly reliable.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI think a curved line from top to the center is working well.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKBecause it does not use the metal parts, hard to put a dent on the fenders and muffler covers.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe wide tracks are one of the reasons for the cool looking Tiger Heavy Tank.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe attachment of the spare caterpillar, I wonder it’s OK for the early-stage type as this photo. There is no space to put a big decal.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKIf we worried about the shape of the clamp and other things, we should replace them. This time I don’t care in detail.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKRecently, Dragon Models tank kits inferior in quality that the only price is up. Dragon’s Tiger is better joint almost parts than this kit. The Dragon is recognized as the king of the true model maker if he keeps the quality of those days.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKOn the other hand, the Italeri kit price is reasonable, the number of parts is not much. The fit of parts is normal.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKThe gun barrel is not made of metal, but I think that quality is enough. I was able to make it happily.

TIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKTIGER-I PANZERKAMPFWAGEN VI Ausf.E EARLY TYPE ITALERI 1/35 FINISHED WORKI own one more Italeri Tiger I, I wonder I build one more at a burst…
