Hello again,

Next installment of images, the etch side fenders.

I was surprised to see Voyager did not provide the front and rear fenders in the etch set. The only way you could obtain the front and rear fenders was purchasing the full external etch setangry

The etch set also fails to give you the 3 bolt on brackets on the front quarter fender which I had to rob from another etch set to complete.

Next step: the paintingsmiley

Looking good Michael.

As for not including the front and rear fenders with out buying the full set, typical of some after market suppliers.

John.

Thanks Scottie,

Apologies for the late reply and thank you, currently in the midst of experimenting with Ammo's dunkelgelb.

Painting a swatch of the base colour and checking to see if this is going to be the right colour to use.

But first the Ammo black primer, and we move forward from there...yes smiley

Hi

I've been absent for a short while, so glad I didn't miss any major updates. Will look fwd to your findings with the set, it does look helpful to have the whole lot in one box, rather than searching for the colours separately.

John.

Thanks John,

I think Ammo released the set of camo colours just after the release of the Takom Henchel Tiger release.

The colour is slightly different to the other Ammo dunkelgelb bought previously, and somehow this colour is slightly lighter than the earlier bottles.

I was under the impression and an be corrected as I thought the later tigers released around the bulge time was a sand type of colour. Looking at various Youtube footage the King tigers base colour looks to me as it was not Dunkelgelb.

I'm not trying to get an exact match on the Tiger 2 but it helps to keep along the theme I'm trying to replicate in the diorama.

I think there is a little more research needed before I move to the dunkelgelb as the base colour.

Michael

Hi Michael.

From around September 44 king tigers left the factory with a fairly standardised scheme of dunkelgelb and green sprayed in patches over the red oxide primer with alo t of the red oxide uncovered.

Tiger II 332 is shown in its original finish at the APG.

Terrific work on the Tiger. I hope the paint job comes out the way you want it. Good luck
