Number of the Beast!

Finally getting towards the end of a large outdoor project and the workbench looms on the horizon so...just cracked open a box to have a look at what Cyber Hobbies new Mid Tiger 1 Befehlswagen #6660 contains...mighty impressive!
Also gave me the opportunity to try and fathom out the workings of my new camera! First impressions of the kit show a raft of tooling changes especially relating to the turret roof, turret shell, and hull roof. The new incorporated detail upon these areas are possibly the finest I've ever seen in 1/35th scale. The depiction of the sheet shroud over the turrets gear and ball-race ring, will give the interior detailer a good footing for depicting the lower reaches of the turret, that has not been covered by any previous major manufacturer or AM manufacturer.
All I have to do now is decide which Mid-Command Tiger to build...008 anybody?!

Don't worry, it doesn't mean I've abandoned '211' to the long finger! Regular service should be resuming over the next few weeks...cheers!
