WIP Tiger I DAK: Construction almost done.

October 17, 2007

The last couple of weeks have been very busy work wise. I haven’t had too much time to work on the model but I am almost done with the assembly and then I will begin the fun part, painting. The barrel was replaced with an aftermarket offering by Tank Workshop, very nice, except the way to mount this on the Tamiya mantlet is to shave the inside of the mantlet about 1 mm. This is very hard due to the design of the part so it is easier just to  file the portion of the barrel that will be seating inside the mantlet until it fits. Here are some pics of it and the rear deck.

    I always wanted to work on a tank kit with a metal barrel, they look like such fun!
