    Hi
    In August I started to stick this model.
    It is excellent position of distance of experienced modellers ( but not only)
    I will try to show many photos and write about problems.

    That has got to be one of the most precise card model builds I've seen. That gearbox is perfect, symetrical clean not a spot on it, very well done sir :!:

    Must be good at photoshop..., has to be retouched?

    Impressive build. Please keep up the excellent work and photographic reporting.

    Great looking build.

    Have you seen the mentions of the Halinski Tiger in some of the other armour threads? This kit suffers from a problem with the roadwheels and swing arms not being adequately anchored into the hull. I thought I'd mention this in case you want to take remedial action before you build over the torsion bars.

    Regards,

    Charlie

    Arsenal’s Tiger is an outstanding model and you are doing it justice. I noticed that you started in August sounds about right it took me 11 months to build my Tiger.

    Charlie is correct my model sits on the shelf with all of the bogies (road wheels) falling off the model because the torsion (swing) arms have broken off the hull. You can see one solution to this problem at these sites.

    You have built several fine armor models and perhaps you have another approach to this problem. If you do please show us how you over came this problem, I think my solution is overly complex.

    Very good, you have one excellent construction.
    I would like to build one Halinski tank but the traks are to much for me.

    WOW :shock:

    I also was afraid by the amount of work necessary to make the tracks in the "original" Halinsky way...

    Then I saw this photo... Now I AM definitely afraid.

    How much it takes to make one of them... your way?

    That track is another proof of the incredible things a papermodeler can do. This group never stop to amaze me.

    Great work, Przemo.
    This thread is a very "must have" for anyone interested in building the Tiger (me included :wink: )

    Przemo,

    You must where glasses...,

    The treads look like they came off the real Tiger.

    Keep up the beautiful work!

    Best regards, Gil

    You’re the man the track links are outstanding.

    It looks like you have scratched built or modified the links that were supplied with the model. I thought that the links in the Halinski model were lacking but when I built the model I did not have the software to redraw the links and more importantly I had no idea of how to go about improving the track links.

    Show us how you made the track links. I’m more the curious envious would be a better word.

    Hi Przemo

    I think you need to do a paper on track building to shows how you came up with this amazing finish :shock: 8)

    Very much looking forward to more on your building methods.
