Takom 1/35th Tiger II Build Day one.

Today I made a start on the kit. And the first place to start was the lower hull and adding the hull stiffener's.


Next came the lower hull sidewall's 



These were then painted Humbrol 133



The masked areas are the demarcation for the ivory areas.

Takom 1/35th King Tiger early production turret

I received this kit towards the end of last year, after falling in love with it after seeing it advertised. The model represents an early production turret version as serving with s.PzAbt.503. I've called it the early production turret version as the Turret was actually built by Krupp for the Porsche version of the King Tiger.
So below is the box top, followed by the kit contents, instructions, decals and other bits and pieces. I will post details of references I'll be using once I start the build.























And a few pictures of Tiger II's of the 503rd at Mailly le Camp in 1944.
