Some extra bits, the partial interior I might add, not yet decided
:shrug:


They are for a late Tiger 1 but for what can be seen through the hatches might be okay?

bloody hell - that is a lot of plastic!
 
that's a great opportunity to make it just like that, hatches open and not just an empty shell. Not that you'll be able to see it all when it's closed up and assembled, but then again, we'll see the interior detail, right here.

Found these little gems in the stash, Just to add to the detail, the interior set is probably going in at this point,
I'll need to think about it as I have a few figures that would look great but fill the space... Choices -Choices !!

great start, nice parts. you could have the gunner in his seat and the commander outside (eg talking to another officer in a Kubel), that way he'll leave the hatchway open to view inside, the more hatches open, the more light will get in.

Or.... have the crew doing parade front, so there nowt inside..

Good God! Rather you than me! I struggle with shackle pins on the real-world things - and some of the ones we handle are so big that they need two people to lift!

Does it really come with all the torsion bars? That's some attention to detail...!

And we are off, Torsion bars fitted and a few other bits n bobs.

The torsion bars work, they are glued in on one end leaving them to operate as per the full size.
I'll probably lock them into place when the time comes.

You could build it with working wheels, suspension and tracks and push it around the living room making 'boom' noises and scare the dog with it.

Just a thought
