  • 1/72 Tiger Hasegawa+Zimmerit Eduard

    It's the Tiger I Ausf. E "last model" with steel wheels (Hasagawa MT39).

    I decided to add the fine "zimmerit" from Eduard on this kit. The first things to do were to remove with a blade the plastic parts which were replaced by the PE parts:

    After this "cleaning" begins the folding and the sticking of PE parts with cyanolite" Superglue.
    Joints between parts are all fil with some acrylic resin Mig applied with a 000 flat brush.

      The headlight and the towing cables came from Dragon, the 2 covers are resin parts. I put some acrylic resin to imitate dried mud too.
      I used Revell matt steel grey 74 for primer.

      The wheels and the tracks were painted and assemblied separately on this model, it was easier !

        For tints, I used acrylic paints from Vallejo model color: the yellow first on all the tank and for the camo, 2 coats every time: buff, german green camo and dark rust (but never pure, always with some brown and red). For tracks, I used black undercoat, dark rust+red and natural steel.
        the crew are 2 Preiser's german tankers, 5 parts to build each one: black undercoat under clothes and brown under flesh. After 2 days, I put Mig's dark and brown wash all over my model, then european dust from Tamiya.

          Really nice

          Sometimes 1/72nd scale totally blows, but there ARE some nice creations possible too.
          Life is change. Built models for decades.
          Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
          I didn't for a long time either.

            The camo' is quite effective on this tank, well done with the zimmerit mate.

                  If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

                    That's looking really nice! The Zimmerit really makes it pop.

                      Great job of breathing new life into this older kit. The zimmerit really looks good.

                        Thanks to all of you for your comments!
                        Easy and fast to build the kit, "one part" tracks with a light sagging. Even if it was for this Hasegawa's model, some Eduard's PE parts had to be cut. And the figs made by Preiser are really the best for 1/72 in plastic.
                        I love building the tanks in the mud better than "direct from the factory"!
