Update

Takom tiger 2 base started, was going to go straight to the engine but could not hold back to start this monster

The sides are not glued in, will paint and detail before placing together.
Filled up the whopping big sink marks in the base. Something a lot of modellers have skipped over, I know you do not see it when all the items are together but sink holes stand out like dogs balls when progress shots are being done.

Hello again,

Here is the next installment of images, that's if PB does not shaft me and say I have exceeded band width
The Takom tiger 2 is a huge build. The engine alone is a good few hours work. The parts are broken down to the respective areas and boxed to keep clear of dust and can be painted and weathered individually.

The air filters have been separated and further detailing will be required to enhance them as they will be outside on the ground.

Hi Mike, looks very good

Good that you could solve the problem

What service did you use instead of photobucket?

Cheers
Ambjoern

Thanks Amba,

I joined 3 image server providers. Image Shack, Flick and Imgur.

At the moment I find Imgur quicker to upload images to the threads.

Will split images across the 3 sites and not have them centralised at 1 web page.

Slow progress,

I have got all the brass shell end cap markings on the ammo racks that will sit inside of the lower hull.
You can take the shortcut and not put them on but if they are in the box why not use them, they look good. The stage progress build shots will show the detail. Takom did a great job to provide the king tiger. I think it's only right we show our models with what they have provided.

Next installment of images
The parts have been broken down to the respective areas in the plastic containers. Reason: to detail each area and make the interior progress images bring out the detail.
The shells have all the brass end caps and are loose for detail painting


The interior commanders hatch and episcopes received a coat of Matt Humbrol matt and the visor glass was given a coat of the Migg Ammo glass lense colour.
This is to give depth to the visor when looking at it from a distance.


Lastly the overall breakdown of the Takom king tiger, Still more work to do around the turret and externals but this image gives a breif breakdown it is such a huge challenge.
