Was sorting out my photobucket account and came accross pics of my Tamiya Tiger I early production dio,one that most of ye have prob seen anyhow at the model fair last year but for some reason i never posted it up in this section. :roll: One of the first models i built after i returned to the hobby,a tank that needs no introduction,great kit from tamiya as always in 1/35 scale and i made up a simple dio base on a picture frame base and added brick walls also from tamiya,i added a poster to the wall of Lenin and also the tiger is rolloing over one of Stalin,the posters are from aminiart kit, i also added some rubble and a miniart lampost was also added.The frame and dio was touched up and weathered a bit more for the display and i added a map where the tank commander is,the figure came with the model and was built straight from the box :)

Cheers Dennis, :oops:GFs nephew is very attracted to my collection of tanks as he thinks they are toys to play with :shock: ,knocked off the lights and cudnt find em,fixed now again tho :) .

The Tiger is my favorite tank as well,followed very closely by the Panther,built a good few Tigers over the years and have a couple more in the stash to do.

Use superglue the next time.




On his fingers I mean while keeping his hands on his back...like handcuffs.
A wonder nothing else got ripped off.

I hate it when people intend to grab a model.
We are the only ones that are allowed to play, all on our own we are the operators of anything we build...broombroom
