This will be a running-mate for "TIKI" Wink 

I have started on the Taigen Tiger I, Early Version, that I got from Freakydude.

The  objective;

Early Style Exhausts;
Tiger I, 2nd SS, Taigen Early Version Exhaus12


I have fit the Mato 3:1's, they will get 400 series motors.



Exhaust stacks have been converted to the early style, not perfect, but I can live with it;

I have used magnets in the Air Filter Hoses, to allow the Taigen removable upper hull feature to work with the hoses (not a problem on the late version Tiger, it doesn't have them);

Nice exhaust work Glen!

My exhaust hoses snapped off forever ago, but they hold themselves up fine so far, hehe!

I tested the hose magnet system this evening, works even better when the upper hull is removed, than I had hoped Very Happy

Airsoft gun has been chopped up to support the gun with a flash.

The mantlet has drilled for the emitter tube.

Removed the commander's coupala so it could be rotated to the correct orientation.

The fire extinguisher is just about ready to install (nice metal one from Freakydude)

The upper hull has been stripped to prep. for priming, this will be my first use of AK Primer.

Lots of the "little bits" are getting ready for paing, too.


The people at Taigen were a bit over-enthusiastic with the glue on some spots on this one.

Glen
When you prime your tanks make sure you wipe it down first. I have found AK doesn't like the grease from your fingers.

just a slightly damp cloth, I mean not a wet one. What happens is the oils from your fingers keep the AK paints from sticking to raw plastic. just a wipe with a slightly moist cloth is enough to keep the "birdseye" away.  Birdseye is basically when the paint beads up instead of laying flat for those new painters reading this.

Making some progress on this.

There has been a change of plan, this one's getting Clark (as soon as the Tiger version is in stock) and a Tamiya IR Receiver.

It is difficult to photograph true colours and good details with the sunlight we get at 6:00PM this time of year, here is the best I could do;

That's really sharp Glen. The light and shadows really show how the camo is supposed to work. 

How many Tiger I's now?? Razz
