Italeri's 1/35 scale
by Paul Nikolic
1/35 scale Tiger I Ausf.E/H is available online from Squadron.com
Here is my 1/35 scale Italeri Tiger I Ausf E/H built straight from
This kit went together well except for the solid plastic individual
tracks. Without any references, I found Angus Creighton's Tamiya build
in TMMI Magazine Issue 70 which described this as the very early Tiger
built up to November 1942 seeing action in Tunisia.
I chose a similar paint scheme using Vallejo air paints mixing greys
and greens followed by a coat of Klear then decals then an oily wash of
black and then drybrushing with enamels. A final dusting of Tamiya flat
earth for dust and this project was finished in under a week.
I switched the numbers around to make 114 but this could be
completely wrong of course. I noticed Angus' numbers were only a white
outline with no red fill which I chose.
Good fun and good value.
