King Tigers

Hi Guys,

Just finished off (well, mostly finished, apart from spare tacks and the tank commander) some King Tigers. These are Battlefronts non-zimmerit version.

I decided to try my hand at a hard edge camo, using blu-tack as a masking agent. I'm satisfied with my first attempt, and learnt quite a bit through the process.

As on most of tanks, Doms Decals were used. The quality of these decals are great, and the Balkenkreuz are perfect, unlike Battlefronts versions, where the white parts seem to be off centre.

Anyway, these guys will be for Schwere Panzer Abteilung 506, hence the turret numbers positioned around the Balkenkreuz as this configuration was particular to that battalion. Company number before the cross, vehicle number after.

Hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking.




  1. Wow, these look great! I'm just cleaning up my first King Tigers ready for assembly, so it's really helpful to see some good pics of the finished product. I wasn't expecting so many pieces in the box! Great blog too :-)
