    Przemo,

    I half expected to see you make some paper gears for the Gear reduction units. The model is awesome.

    Looks to me like your model would probably win in a contest between it and the real thing for wich one looks the best. Very Very nice work!

    Przemo,

    You know how to do one Wow of a build! I'm curious about how you plan to exhibit the finished model. An interesting diorama maybe?

    This has got to be one heck of an engineering marvel! I had to go back thru and see how you built up the tracks, fantastic! Very precise craftsmanship!

    Amazing! Reviewing this thread just makes you speechless! I know it is going back a ways, but how did you make the nuts for the road wheels (and other places)? The realism is spectacular!

    Hi!

    Gil- I'm think I will build small diorama for Tiger. Finally I will build late version fighting in 102 batalion - Normandy '44.

    Destroyed Sherman beside the Tiger... :)

    Now I must build lots of details...it will be long road to finish this tank.

    Clashster- to make such a nuts I use sharp needle and Olfa's knife. I will try to show in next update how I did this.

    Best regards from Poland!!!
