Builds 1/35th scale King Tiger cut away

Top King tiger kit with full interior detail throughout. As the images were all lost in the downfall of my image host, I'll post them again in a brief version of the original build on the Military Modelling pages. So from start to finish, starting with the artwork and box lid off.

No not this King Tiger (he wishes) the WW2 heavy tank of the Panzerwaffe. The main hull and turret parts.

Absolutely fantastic work there Sprocket. I remember this from earlier but it still amazes me how detailed the kit is and the quality of the finished item. A very different build and not one I think I’d be able to do.

cheers mate, I'll see if I can dig out other builds where the image host has given up and left me high and dry.

That is very nice Sprocket, I seem to recall Tamiya doing something similar years ago.
Just as matter of interest, the Sailing vessel behind .?
 
Bloody hell. That's 4 you've knocked out this weekend. Do you not sleep? Are there actually eight of you and you are really one of a number of Santa's elves masquerading under the call sign of @SPROCKET321?

@daz - he's done another one!!!!!

He did that on Friday. There are another 10 to the right of the one you can see, and 7 on the floor - they were last Wednesday:oops:
