I have not been posting but have been a little busy over the past week. The little General wanted me to build a Tiger Tank. I rescaled Rawan’s Tiger I from 1:100 scale. I think it came out well. The other thing I’ve been doing is working on a sdkfz.10 artillery tractor. Pictured on the right, it is the white template. No tracks or wheels yet. But those are pretty easy to do anyway. I do need to adjust the front fenders, widening them and fixing the length.
Tiger Gun barrel is the length of a toothpick minus the tapered ends. 7/8″ of paper was wrapped twice followed by 7/16″ width of paper wrapped 3 times to get the tapered look of the gun. The muzzle break is 1/8″ of a medium kabob skewer. The half track took me about 3 days to get to this point. I suspect I will have a detailed version this weekend.
The total build time of the Tiger was about 3 hours. I think it took me about 1 hour to get the half track built to that point. Maybe another half hour for tracks and wheels.
EDIT Here is the half track with wheels and tracks. When I printed it out, I realized I forgot to duplicate the wheel. Fortunately, there was a spare from my sdkfz.231 sitting on the table.
