Full Details of the king tiger ( to those who don't know what it is ) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_tiger
Here's the Box art -
This is one seriously simplified kit ... but still, its a lovely kit and tamiya made this thing quite beautifully -
Anyway here's what I have done -
Spocket and Ideller wheels
Exhuast are glued on and sanded ( although they will be covered, I just can't help getting rid of the seams )
The wheels fit very very nicely on the suspension
And I also made the Wheels movable by utilizing Tamiya's own superb engineering .. I plan to make a video showing you the moving wheels so be on the look out for that .....
Although this kit is really good, when I put on the rear plate on to the chassis, there was this huge huge gaps all along the joint so I had to filled it and sand it down
Also ran into some gaps on the front Glacis plate so I had to fill them and sand them down ( I just realize there are still gaps ... darn it ... oh well, more fillers and sanding
The Exhaust goes on nicely onto the rear hull
And then, I moved on to the Barrel - Here is how I deal with barrel -
I put bits and bobs of my stryene rods lying around inside the barrel as support and to make them heavy and to have a proper rigid feel to them
With those in place, I glued the other half and I can even do this without breaking the barrel -
and followed with some usual filling and sanding . .. ( darn things always leave a seam in the middle )
I am truly enjoying this build as I haven't touched any tanks for quite some times.
Please look forward to my updates and thank you for your support as usual.
