Thread: Optional Roadwheels on Tiger I
28/11/2017 15:45:24

Paul's correct there. For railroad transport the outer road wheels were detached and the narrow transport tracks were installed.
However, I wouldn't call the late style Tiger I wheels 'Tiger II style' since the Tiger I's had that kind of wheels (although not visible they still are rubber dampened wheels, but unlike the old model the rubber rim is invisible on the inside in stead of an outside visible rubber edge) before the Tiger II was produced smile p

I don't know the Tamiya kit, but if you do decide to leave the outer wheels off, you need to add (don't know if Tamiya provides that in the kit - I know Dragon ones have the parts) a hub on the axle on which the outer wheels were bolted on.
Some units only left the first outer road wheel off to prevent mud building up between the drive sprocket and first wheel station as seen on this photo:

Hope that helped a bit

I think sometimes people forget this is 'just' a hobby... And while I admit - being a Tigernut - when I see flaws in a Tiger build I tend to point out the inaccuracies in a friendly manner, but if people decide to carry on it's fine by me. After all it's the person who builds who should enjoy himself and be happy with the result.

And speaking about modelling military subjects, that doesn't imply the need for 100% accuracy at all. Personally I prefer a well executed model with flaws than a well researched 100% correct (if such a thing exists) built model with poor paintwork and weathering.

Anywhoo, I think we modellers from time to time tend to take ourselves a bit too p

There's another option: Mr. Surfacer, it comes in different thicknesses but the Mr. Surfacer 1500 (both available in black and grey) sprays very smooth when thinned with Tamiya's Lacquer Thinner or with Mr. Levelling Thinner. Mind though, it is nasty stuff so a mask with filters is recommended

Nice one, those decals give it it's character. What a nice looking plane, love those vibrant roundels and French flag at the tail. And that jig, still find it a very good idea, I should keep it in mind.

Can you put a real live thingy next to the plane for us and take a photo so we can have a sense of scale? smile p Quite curious, think most of us will be even more impressed!

Wouter - I probably will depict him as an old soldier: grey moustache etc.


Yeah, good idea, the Old Guard are the real cool guys. You gonna give him an earring as well?

Looking forward to see the first dashes of paint!

Ah, one of the Grognards. Always good to see them! Nice start Peter

Mad and brave often aren't far from each other mate teeth 2

Good to see you make a start with the ground crew and ammo boxes/fuel drom. Looking good there.

Wish your grandson good luck tomorrow and warn the people to stay of the road face 20

Hi Bobby, that finish on your Flycatcher is very good. Really love that paintwork, same goes for the rigging.

And that etchwork on the Sopwith, sure gives it that bit extra ^^
