For your kind words. Your tiger over at Track 48 was a real insperation for me also I used your paint ratios for my red brown and dark yellow. - Jared
Well, for accuracy's sake...

Thats the starter right? I am usually modeling those winged thingys, so sufice it to say my time in researching my AFV models is a little sub par. I am not sure I will attempt to fix it now, but since I have been put on notice I might have to
For me the tow cables could rest differently as in this pic...

Hi Greg thanks for the comments

Those tow cables turned out to be quite a bear if you can believe that. When I pushed or pulled at one end they always seemed to move around or shift in an unexpected place at the other end. Or they would get tangled some place. I have tried to get the cables to rest appropriately with weighted look, but it just does not want to cooperate. If you look close at the picture from the rear, the tow hook on the left is broken! That is on my to-do list. Fortunately I have an old kit I can rob one from.
I think the cables much like the "diamond thingy" might be caulked up to a learning experience and move on. There are still a few things left to do so I might give it a go after I have been able to step back and have a second look at this thing.
I do think you are right about dusting up the turret a bit. After your comments and then looking at the pictures I think I will add just a bit more. - Jared

My Humble Opinion, Jared........

Awesome awesome AWESOME Tiger, Jared.
Aside from the "non-vertical diamond thing" (haha), this is perhaps one of the finest 1/48 Tigers I have seen yet. I am very impressed by your talent, my friend.
The dirt/mud colors on the wheels & suspension is just beautiful too.
My hat is off, Jared. Where have you been hiding? I want to see more of your work, Mate!
Cheers, from a VERY impressed, Pat

A very kind note from you too. The road wheels and suspension work turned out to be a lot of fun and quite the learning experience. This was my second attempt at a heavily muddied up AFV after lots of pointers and constructive critique from the fine gents here.
Pat, I am usually lurking around over at hyperscale. Check the plastic pic forum later tonight. You can see what I am usually up to.
By the way you are quickly becoming the king of shearmans! I cant wait to see your hessian netted sherman with some paint on it! - Jared
Cool Cool Cool

I also second the model looks very good, even more taking in consideration your efforts in the making and the mentioned lack(???) of experience in AFV modelling, but that is your opinion only because I would not say it so by seeing the result...
I admire your good taste on the dark yellow / red brown camo scheme because you cannot see that combination on a Tiger often and they are very beautiful indeed, but on top of everything I like very much you ended making up one A/B sides model actually, because -in my opinion- the model offers two different images depending on the side you look at (with/without side fenders). A very clever way to exploit one model visually, well done.
PS: As for the diamond thing, David is one true Tiger speciallist so better is to listen his recomendations on time.
very nice camo, congratulations N/T
