Huge pile...

Thats a nice huge pile of parts I especially like the engine - it is an independent model itself, would be nice to see it on a stand.

Thanks MZ ,

The Engine is going to have chains draped around each end free standing in the air from the Bilstein crane.

The next phase now is the primer painting to the Takom king tiger. A lot of painting

I have commenced with painting the Track tools and cables. Easier to paint than trying to detail on the tank.

Finally have the tables and chairs glued together the next stage is to slop them in the paint que and get them ready for completing the Ardennes building.

And now for the next round...

The Takom king Tiger rounds painted and ready for the decals, will have to lay a coat of gloss over each round to have the decal sit flush.

The sub section parts ready for priming

And now painted with Mig ammo primer, the calm before all the painting and detailing begins

The Road wheels receive a coat of Mig Ammo Steel

Hello again,

I have turned all my attention onto the lower running gear of the Tiger 2 and will alter from the build instructions.
The first step will have the sides and base of the hull painted before gluing all the running gear onto the tank .

I have test fitted the torsion bars into each side and found there is a lot of flexibility in the wheel arms, there is a lug that apparently is meant to lock the arm in but there is still movement on the wheel arm once inserted in place.

Looking around on the net there has been some horrible build attempts on the torsion bars and it's with this series of photo's to show that Takom have manufactured the model correctly albeit with a little sanding on the torsion bar arms.
