hi,
my new project:
DML's tiger I:
the buid begin with the torsion bars, to make them mobile, I enlarged the hole in which they donned, then I put them in place and I glued a piece of plastic card for not they come out:

now the zimmerit i used superfin miliput (white) , i crushed it between tow shit of parchment paper and i applied to the area.... for the design of the zimmerit I just crashed over a piece of an old dml's tiger II with Zimmerit above .. what could be more simple?

In my opinion the zim looks a bit thick but it could be just the pics. I like what you did with the torsion bars but were they not workable to begin with? I'll be watching this build with interest.

hi,
I just tough to a diorama idea:
the tankers are waiting for their news hull weapons, the other are stem....
"helmut" brings them on his bicycle... the tank commander will install these weapons, while the others camouflage the tank with foliage.:rolleyes::rolleyes:
see you!

Hi Boss!
I think you should change the exhaust covers to PE, it is easier to represent damage realiticaly on those IMHO.
