King Tiger/Königstiger/Tiger 2 Tank WIP

Post by PhiMa on Thu Oct 08, 2009 3:20 pm

So...I received my BL order yesterday, and was able to finally start my first Axis Tank (StuG III is a Tank hunter), the King Tiger, or Tiger 2.

Reference Pictures:



My current WIP:


Right now I've got the turret about half finished (Still need to fix detail, possibly shorten it by 1 or 2 studs, and lengthen the barrel) and the bottom half of the tank also about half finished (Don't have enough wheels for the other side, still need to add back armour and finish of the front. Figure for scale

I got the main idea for the wheels from Aaron Morse, but they actually look entirely different. C&C appreciated.

Thanks & Enjoy!

Looking great, but the transfer from gun to turret is too big.

Looks good, I especially like the curve on the upper treads.

Treads look good, but you have to shrink the gun down a bit. Wink

@DP: I still need to work on the turret alot...

@Pizza: Uh...this is a Tiger II...

@Troopa Daisy: What? Do you mean just the gun? Or the entire Turret?

@DY: Let's see...because...there's so many more pieces made in dk. bley than in tan or dk. green? And because my dk. grey is the biggest? And because there weren't any dk. green king tigers? And only tan camo King tigers? Honestly, not everyone has a collection as large as you...

I know it's a Tiger II, I'm saying that since you're making one, I will just make mine a I the ORIGINAL tiger. Wink

Just a current status report...buitl up the other side of armouring, started sloping the front, I've got an idea on how to fix the turrent and the exhausts, and I've filled out a BL order for the other side of wheels. Also forgot one wheel...so I'll have to lengthen it by about two studs.

Phima, I meant that you shrink the turret a bit. Overall, I think it looks okay, but the turret is just a bit too big. Wink Smile

I agree with troopa, shrink the turret. FYI you need to ad one more wheel. The real deal has seven, your's so far has six. Wink

Actually, the real deal has 11, but whatever. I know I'm one short. I'll be fixing that.

Thanks for that post 80-0.



Fixed the gun to turret differential, added the correct amount of wheels, added the MG and light on the front, but not too pleased with the MG, started a crew, added exhausts (not visible) and tracks on the other side.

Update. I've gotten the tread armour done and the hatch on the turret. Also, I'm now only missing the greebles on the top half, and I'm done. Comments?

DP, five word rule! Razz

It looks pretty good, I just think that the turret should be a bit bigger though. Smile
