        Just stay on the topic man. If you do your own Build thread we'll be happy to support it.

          Tinning the mudguards so the structure can be given some strength.

                A fortnight away from home, getting a house ready for sale. Arrived home, and managed to get a couple of hours work on Tiger 996 today. Red primer on over the the etch primer, which has been drying for the last two weeks. Tamiya dark yellow, sprayed on. I then decided to damage the Zimmerit a bit more.

                The rear panel was repaired, and the starter mount refitted.

                Lastly, damage was done to the track fitting cable, to try to simulate impact damage from being hit.

                Al, parts are just dry fitted at the moment, until painting has been completed.

                  Looking real good. I know you've said this is your last Tiger but any second thoughts about maybe one more as you progress through the build. I went Tiger crazy when I first got into this hobby. 3 of my first 4 tanks were Tiger 1's and then I went off of them. I've had so much fun re-doing the 3 Tigers this winter I'm tempted to buy another Tamiya and do it up as a mid but just go nuts this time with details like your photo etch skirts. When I post up my current finished Tamiya you will see why I've never even contemplated pricey skirts as I constantly smash the kit ones off driving around🤣

                    Thank you.

                    Defiantly, my last. I want to do a couple of modern tank. I have plans for another Challenger, and a Leopard. They have been fun to do.

                        Took it outside, between the showers and managed some outside pictures.

                          Start with the new markings. Painted and added crew. Of course, one has the obligatory cup of tea. Because we’re British.
