Tiger I LAH Division at Kharkov


This is a bit out of my normal medium, but I really wanted to do some AFV for some time, so I took a risk with the legendary Tiger tank.

The kit is the old Tamiya. I didn't want to spend too much money on a better kit because I was kind of afraid of spoil it.

The figures are from Alpine Miniatures, and are really great! Lot's of details for the scale, excellent to assemble and very easy to clean. The figures are not cheap, but are worth it!

Regarding the painting I must say it was a totally different challenge from what I'm used to. I don't have an airbrush, so it was painted using only brushes.

I didn't use the decalls, because I really don't like those things... I knew that I had the skill to free hand paint the markings, so I choose to do it and I'm happy with the result.

Had to purchase some enamel paints to do the weathering and terrain to achieve a better weathering and ground work, but the majority of the painting of the Tiger is acrylics, including the white wash.

In conclusion, it was a nice effort and I really loved the work of kit assembly and painting and I'm very happy with the result.
