Tiger Idler...

A Tiger's idler is pretty low but that one is riding on the ground as evidenced by the downward tilt of the rear track. It should run straight across the road wheels and rear idler like in these pics off the web...

And here is a properly tensioned track while on the move.

Also there were two sizes of idlers on Tigers. An earlier large one and a later smaller one. The track will dip a bit at the rear when using the smaller idler but not near as much as in that pic.

Yes, those are all using the smaller idler and as I said they will dip a bit (older idler was 700mm dia. later one was 600mm) But not nearly as much as the pic posted earlier.

the diorama is finish except for the figure, i used the lacquer technique for barrier....
I changed again the story of my diorama, tow American war reporter were going to the tank to take picture of it, but when when they were near the tank tow "fallshirmjäger" were here too...
the tittle:
"you see joe, I tell you the will be back!"









my favourite pics!



figures, they come from dml..








tow american figurine will be added to the dio
see you for the end!

the tiger will be just abandoned, yes, I see now, the tracks hover just a bit on the left side (see from the rear), i will add some earth under tracks where it doesn't touch the ground..

Nice title. I like your fallshirmjagers, but the Kar98k in the guys hand looks unnatural that way... :/

PS: turret?

Nice composition. Looks like you got a winner here. one thing, with it being an abandoned vehicle you were right in removing the ball MG, but you left the coax mg there. It too would have been removed. Great job, keep it up.

thanks Arthur!
put the K98k like that was the only way, if I turn it, the breech won't be in the hand of the fallshirmjäger....
Dml is trolling answer for the turret.......
I send you a PM..
