    After giving up on that ironside dalek, I've decided to redo a model of a Tiger I I did a year ago. I've upscaled it to 1:25th, and I intend to make it a lot more detailed than the old model.

    I've started by doing a proper set of wheels, which themselves take up ten pages:

    I've also included two versions of tracks; a normal and fairly-weathered type, and a snow-weathered one:

    Too bad, I have some Whosian friends...
    Well, I'll have to make other dr Who models for them ;)

    @lehcyfer: Well, as of now, the only Who model I've done has been a TARDIS, which you can find at my site :p


    Well, I'm still new to this whole weathering thing (though it's more whitewashing then weathering), but I think I did a fairly decent job my first time around:

    Well, I kept my promise, and the model now includes an engine! Granted, it's a grossly oversimplified one.
    Due to some oversight early on in the design, however, an in-model engine is merely a partial segment, with the full engine model unable to be housed within the model without some modification.

    and the model's pretty much done! Gonna do the testbuild next week, and I'll hopefully do the final touches by then, too!

    Well, this was unimaginably tedious, but I drew up cutouts of Wittmann and crew that are to scale with the model:

    And the model's pretty much done! I've included very simple Pzgr. Patr. 39s in the model. The base will have room to display the crew, one '39, and a completely-built HL 210 if the builder wishes.

    I'll be putting together the PDF soon, and I should be able to start testbuilding within the hour!

    Pretty much done with the main hull structure. Sorry for the crappy build; I'd pay more attention, but I have other things to focus on at the moment, so I'm just trying to get this done as quickly as possible.

    And the tank's complete. I'll upload more pics once I finish the base and get everything cleaned up.
