A couple more photos Tiger 1 - 1/16th Scale

The early in-progress photo shows that the kit barrel was discarded and a new one was turned from aluminum rod.
Hatch details are a mix of Aber and scratch built parts.

Added the driver and a few more mud effects - more weathering to begin on the the tracks.

Wow, very nice!
I like the painting, at first I was fooled into believing that they were reference pics of some museum-held Tiger but then I remembered that museums keep their stuff clean(er than this one).
