First a bit about this kit i think its the henglong r/c kit (mid production tiger1) and so the hatches and some other bits are moulded on so a bit of surgery here its well packed and when built from the box would build up wellCool my build started about a month ago so i have a lot done so will post what i`ve done so far and there is a lot of etch Cool cheers philCool

BigGrin Phil! Good to see you back ThumpUp
Nice choice of kit, this one. You’re right it looks to be ex R/C with all the gubbins removed. Enjoyed building mine, but couldn’t tell you where it is Confused
Can’t wait to see what you do with it, but I assume you’ll be adding zimmerit?

Regards Gray

I then moved on to the upper hull and here`s where the fun really began, i wanted to add figures to the tank and the hatches for the driver and radio operator are moulded on as is the jacking block and side fenders along with the front fenders, all these were removed as i wanted to add more detail and Abber and voyager do replacement brass sets along with the Taigen white metal hatches Cool

They are all filled and smoothed along with various holes for the tools and cables which will be replaced with the brassCool i turned my attention to the front plate where the drivers block and ball machine gun sits ,the drivers block is moulded shut which looked odd so i cut this out and separated the two halves and added a piece of perspex to it , i think it looks a lot better the gaps were filled with plastic card were the material was removed from the sawingCool
