Here is the result of my effort to model the Tiger No 100 of the 502nd Heavy Panzer Battalion. Base model is the Dragon Initial Tiger which I had bought almost as soon as it came out back I think in 2003. I had wished to model this particular vehicle even before the Dragon model was released, because of the different layout of the storage bins on both sides of the turret, something I have not seen on another vehicle.

I tried to portray the vehicle as I thought it would look by the end of 1942, shortly after it arrived at the front and long before its capture by the Russians in January 1943. Since I found on the net its photos taken at Gorky Park in Moscow in 1943 at the captured enemy weaponry display, just as I completed the model, I know of most of the obvious mistakes I made to depict this particular vehicle. It was too late for this one but maybe in the future I may try another one, who knows?

Painted mostly by Tamiya acrylics, detail painted by Vallejo, weathered by Mig and AK products.

Comment are wellcome and actually sought...
