Hello Gents.This is my one of projects ready for painting. I spent 1 year and sth. with building. So this is the result. I decided to by no aftermarket set, but improve the kit with DIY parts only. I have doubts regarding tracks. Looks nice, but still sth.drop out or pins get to lose. Consider not painting it separately as I usually do it. But I will fix it on the kit before painting.

Looking good but don't forget to re position the commander's cupola
What vehicle do you have in mind?

Hello Gents, thanks a lot for your comments. This tiger would be F01 Fehrmann kampf gruppe, such a puzzle tiger as you know. Regarding commander hatch position it looks bad for me, so I will correct it. I dont know why, but was assured that commander turret was able to turn. thatīs why RFM offers two positions of fitting it. Iīve observed all pictures of tiger again during today. Always same position of hatch - hinge on the right side. Well my wrong.

@Mufty: thanks, my greeting from Brno, little bit cloudy at the moment :-)

Oh, goodness, no, it does not rotate.
