Hey guys, its been awhile but I wanted to share with the group a Tiger I started some time ago that I 1) got around to finishing, 2)updated the weathering with new techniques I've learned since starting this.

Thanks to the group for posting and inspiring me. Many thanks to Steve Faxon, whom graciously donated two clevis after I managed to break two.

One more ask of the group; I would like to take the next step with some of my recent AFV completions and add a base with some ground work. Does anyone have a good source for techniques or tutorials they can share? thanks in advance.

Any questions or comments are welcome.

Hi Jared:

What a nice cat you have up there. I´m for one that always find the two color camo´d Tigers -no matter red brown or green- very appealing and you do see those many often. Well done!


Regarding vignette bases, Lu is one that is always working on those for his models. I hope he may provide you some tips. Andrew Deeley has been doing some rather interesting gardening fine works lately as well. And you may also want to take a look at Kevin Townsend´s 251 series vignettes at Track48.

HTH!
Alvaro

Alvaro - thanks for the kind words. The modelers you've mentioned have been my inspiration to try a base for my more recent builds, in particular Lu's work. I really enjoy how no model is too small to have it's own vignette in Lu's world.

Steve - somewhere along the way I stole this recipe and have enjoyed the results; (all Tamiya acrylics) XF-60:6, XF-59:2, XF-57:7, XF-2:5 for the base yellow. The same recipe was used for the red brown except XF:64 instead of XF:60. There is many layers of filters and pigments over the top of the base camouflage and some manipulation with my computer to try and get the colors as close as to what my eye sees.

Hi Jared

Excellent work, it looks extremely realistic. Top marks.

Do you have any photos of the unpainted model please?

Also regarding the ground work, drop me an email to aejd AT icloud DoT com and I will send you some info on books etc.

Regards
Andrew

Outstanding!

Dear Jared,
Thanks for sharing. I think the model itself is really well detailed, but the finish is excellent. I especially think you did well on the lower hull and track weathering.
This reminds me, in terms of quality and finish, of the 1/35th scale Tiger in the old AFV Modeler magazine by Luciano Rodriguez.

Job Well Done,
Shon

Supurb!

I'm a bit late here but....this is outstanding Jared, words don't do it justice.
The build and the finishing are top class, I wish I could do work like this.
Could you tell me what colours you've used for the tracks, the effect is very realistic?
It's hard to believe this is 48th.
Congrats mate.
Cheers Tim
