Response to bending and warping Tiger 1 side mud guards ?
don't crumple them up like you often see modellers do!!! these mudguards were thick and sturdy, not flimsy sheetmetal. they didn't crumple-up during a collision, they became dislodged.
some slight bending along an entire axis is ok to vary the otherwise uniform line of the bottom of the fenders, but other than that, bending becomes unrealistic. invest in some Tiger I references and look at lots of pics of Tigers in combat (Tigers in Combat I & II are good books for this) so that you have a feel for what's correct and what's not correct.
