There is nothing new here, in fact the very reverse. The Airfix Tiger I did a long, long time ago, I'm thinking early teens. It might have been based on an Airfix magazine article, or I might have used the Roco Mini Tank as a template.
The road wheels are missing (which tends to make me thing I was following an magazine article when I made this - needed Panther wheels). There is some plastic card in use (it was very rare stuff when I was growing up in Adelaide in the 1970s), but mostly I have used Plasticine.
The black tracks mean this model is not as old as I thought it was, but it might have been a cannibalization of two kits. The body being an old model of mine (if you look closely you can see I assembled the gun barrel wrong) and the tracks from a mate's model that was probably a wreck. But I'm guessing.
An actual transfer in use which is rare for me. You can see I have mainly tried painting on detail.
The Roco Mini Tank (or at least I think it is). 1/87th scale. Nice little model, but a tad too small, especially for a Tiger. You wouldn't think maths was my best subject given how I've painted the turret numbers.
Given the identical colour schemes I must have done these in the same timeframe. Would have been good old Humbrol enamels.
Still painting on the detail (and insignia).
An opening hatch. How cool is that!
These are a more recent acquisition, this century at least. They were on special at Cancon one year and obviously I couldn't resist. The command tank is remote control.
Can't remember the brand, but they are the ones that come fully assembled and painted.
They mean business.
Sadly the first two picture models (the Airfix and Roco) were in my spares box. Lucky for them Paul's post won them a reprieve and a chance for 15 minutes of fame.
