Red face King tiger with late tracks

Hi guys,

This is my first post I'm sharing with you.

It's the Dragon king tiger with late tracks (ref 6232). It's depicted during the battle of the Bulge in the schwere panzer Abtleilung 506. The kit was pretty much built OOTB, except for some PE tool clamps I took from my spare box. The zimmerit was made with milliput and textured with the AFV club zimmerit die. The commander is a Nemrod figure and the loader is from Tristar. Both received Legends resin heads.







Please feel free to comment.
Happy new year,
Pat

A really nice Tiger II. Great Zimmerit and the turret numbers are really spot on I asume they are painted on. The figures looks really outstanding aswell.

Regards

Erik

Thanks a lot for your kind words. It was my second attempt with zimmerit. I have to say the AFV club tool is really efficient. Got it for around $4 at Lucky Models. As for the turret numbers, they're not painted. They're the kit's decals applied over a Future coat and treated with microset.

I'll try to post pics of some previous works.
I'm currently working on the Tristar panzer IV D (first issue). A nice kit but needs a lot of attention. Not as good as their panzer 38t.

Happy new year,
Pat
