I'd like to make use of this thread, The bloke next door is building a 1/6 scale model
Tiger1, he is allowing me to take photos as the build progresses.
The tank is made of aluminium, the finished tank weighs in excess of 300KG
he has bought a car hoist to build it on, the model comes with all the whistles and bells,
The guns fire, the engine smokes on start up
I'll try and explain things as we go along
Take one

He has now started to fit the turret, the paint on all the components as had to be removed
as the man he bought it off used the wrong primer
All to be done in primer and assembled, then stripped and given its finish coat
in camouflage, then reassembled
Take Two
