Tiger I Late - M.Wittman

Hello friends!

I started my new proyect with Tamiya, 1/35 and "adds-on": Voyager PE's, Tracks of resin from Lion Marc, hooks and some tools of J. Peddinghaus, Archer transfers and barrel gun metal of Jordi.





Tools to make a Zimmerit are includes in the Voyager set and I have the Tamiya ones.



Preparing the way for applying the Zimmerit. I will use the tools and the Polyester Putty of Tamiya , both are an excellent resource. Filling the holes before to assemble the tools with Photoetched.







Regards,
Rodolfo

Nice work with the Zim' and overall. Ever try Bondo Spot Putty for Zimmerit? I've also used Power Poxy epoxy paste with some success.

I really do not know because I have only worked with this putty.
