    Hi!
    JRTS...I will show new phots in this week.

    Ron-no problem :)

    Like I sad, I decide to paint the whole Tiger.
    I still thinking about camouflage.Probably I will paint whole tank Humbrol 32-Dark Grey.
    Interior will be paint Humbrol 144 (blue-grey) and Humbrol 34 (white).

    Soon I will show new vision of the hull interior.
    I will discripe my idea to do good suspension in Tiger.

    I decide to do rela armor value...for example front "armor" in model have 4mm.Side armor have 2,4 mm etc.

    I will show new photos soon.
    Best regards, Przemo

    I had thought that I would rebuild the suspension arms on my Halinski Tiger because they have come off the model. However watching Przemo build his Tiger makes me think that I should just burn it (I’m kidding) and start over. Przemo we have a name for builders like you we call them Master modelers, this is a super model.

    Second the opinion of Jim Nunn. I don't think I've ever seen such a clean build. Great work, great to watch. Good luck with the new camera - you're sure to put it to good use! - Leif
