Hi all


This is Tamiya's 1/48 Tiger 1 - Early Production, which I have depicted in German Grey with a well worn, winter whitewash camo. It's my first completed build for a number of years.

This was also my first attempt at using the hairspray chipping method and doing excessive weathering.

It was painted with acrylics and weathered with oil paint washes and various pigments.

I plan to make a small display base for it (the one in the photos was borrowed from a previous build) ... once I can work out the best way to make snow....

Thanks for looking,
Greg

Looks fantastic.
I did one very similar to yours using cheap hairspray from the dollar store. The base also looks very well made.
