Hey Jacob,

Nice work! This is moving along fast!... That's what I love about 1/72 nd scale builds.

There is one observation tho, there were two different commander's cupolas fitted to the Ausf E. The early ausf Es had a cupola that was roughly cylindrical and the hatch opened vertically. This is how you depicted the hatch. (See below).



The late version of the ausf E had a different cupola. On these the hatch opened sideways (see image below). This is the cupola on your model.



I would try and fix that. The other suggestion is to "blank" the engine grills. What I mean by this is, since the model has no engine, to put a piece of plastic painted black under the engine grills to prevent seen all the way to the floor of the engine compartment. This makes the model look way better than staring into an empty engine bay.

Hey Jacob,

Nice work so far on the Tiger. Im looking forward to see it with paint.

I think the paints you have chosen are good. Remember there is no right or wrong here, all depends of what you are trying to represent.

Hey Jacob,

Looks like the track was short. That is one thing that often happens with link and length tracks (see my T-80 thread) and many times you have to scratch build a few links to close the loop.

One thing that helps is not to glue the sprocket until the tracks are in place. Most of the time I don't glue the sprockets at all. Maybe you can do that on the other side if you have not glued it already.
