Takara winter white Panthers
Takara versus set King Tiger
Takara Wittmann Tiger 1
I have now done a Tiger 1 from the Takara versus set. The model is pre-painted for 'Battle of Normandy'. I added an Arrowhead commander figure by drilling a hole through the turret hatch and glued in the commander figure and then used a hatch from a CanDo Panzer Korp kit (they always provide 2 for each model). My original intention was then to repaint the model with a German sand base but having got rid of or repainted all my Tiger 1s in this paint scheme I decided to keep it in its pre-painted colour scheme. But I did the following:
- repainted all the equipment on the tank (axes, cables, track links etc.);
- painted the commander and new hatch cover;
- gave the whole thing a wash in Games Workshop Agrax Earthshade;
- put some mud effect on the wheels and tracks and edges of the vehicles (Vallejo Flat Earth and German Camouflage Orange Ochre).
Finished model shown below form various angles:
