Well there has been a little more work on the first kompanie Tiger '121' (this is a slightly 'modded' DML #6383 with moulded Zimmerit... Not a big fan!) a bit of subtle shifting of the pigments and a light dusting of a very heavily diluted Tamiya Buff XF57. This is applied along the lower hull, and at the intersection of the turret and hull roof. This helps 'tie in' the pigments and washes, and gives the effect of a very recent coat of 'travelling' dust... After all these Tigers road marched some 10k to get knocked out at Villers Bocage!
Now that this Tiger is nearing completion, my thoughts turn to the next Tigers upon the 'workbench horizon'! These will both be from the second kompanie, the first incarnation of '211' and either '233' or '234' using the tactical numbers of two unidentified Tigers to tie in with a 'knocked out' second kompanie Tiger, that features a few interim features of a February '44' build.
Right then "scalpel nurse"... Cheers Phil.
