Hi Dmitry, once again i am about to post something in your thread

Please tell me to remove the post if it is not of your liking.

I found a amateur vide from the restoration pictures i think you have used for your build and well, think it could be cool to hear from the people working with the real think, scale 1:1 =)

Thank you, very nice video. But I did`t learn anything new for myself. I do not mind, let the link be here .

I hope to show you soon the photo/video of the periscopes. They took me just a huge amount of time .



Alright, i leave the link were it is and hope to see some updates from your masterpiece soon

Dimitry,

Your work is awesome!
I'm actually using your and Liejon's build as reference, they're that good!

The insanity is real!

No, seriously Dmitry; there is no need any more for reference books, pictures or other stuff once this build is complete. Your detailing is just mind blowing big time.

Keep up the excellent work Dmitry!

I wonder how you can stay so persistent and focused.


I do not know myself, but already in the course of 8 years every day I do this model. I do not do it, only on those days when I was on vacation.
Perhaps this is my mission in this world

P.S.
btw, new video - "Rear turret hatch"

I really like this dunkelgelb color.

@Dmitry,

Well worth the wait! I don’t come here as often as I use to been very busy with other life things but was sure happy to see more progress on your build. Truly inspiring! You’re creative talent is leaving us with a great piece of history, on the technical working detail side of a Kingtiger that we would otherwise not be aware of. Keep up the excellent work!

My god!
You are one serious model expert Dmitry

I have never ever seen anyone do that kind of detail work to ammo racks =)

Your rework from the original is, well, it's much more than a rework. Its a complete makeover haha =)

Very impressive indeed. Threads like these who make it worth spending time here on this forum

Keep up the excellent work Dmitry



Thank you!

Hello guys!

It took only 8 months, and I already had Turret ammo racks

I apologize for being so long, but it truly was a colossal job.

Kit piece:


Reworked:









real KT ammo racks for comparison:




And three new video on my channel:

Thank you very much for your comments guys!

In my opinion you exaggerate my abilities. This is just another КТ model. But in any case it's nice to hear such words and they help me to continue my work. Thank you!

Tim, answering your question, the hull is completely closed, but all hatches will be moving. The roof of the turret will be removable.

I sometimes do not understand why I've been doing this everyday! during 7 years

By the way now I'm doing racks for shells in the turret and it will take a fairly long time so just do not think that I gave up. I hope, the result will impress you.

Dmitry, if you carry on like this model-makers’ brains all over the world are going to start exploding, including mine – like in “Mars Attacks!”. Obviously I can’t claim to have seen every excellent build over the years, but I can tell you that this is threatening to topple what I consider the most perfect masterpiece I’ve ever seen – Brian Wells’ scratch-built Nashorn, featured in Military Modelling mag. Vol. 28 No. 12 August 1998.

Maybe you covered this earlier on but my (inevitable) question is: how much of this interior detail is going to be visible when you’ve finished? I guess it doesn’t really matter, you – and all of us – know what’s inside.

Sublime.

wow, truely, take some of your pics and PS them into a workshop setting and this would easily seem like a original restoration project.

Amazing.

Dmitry -

Without a doubt, the most impressive and highest quality detail and workmanship I think I've seen. You're beyond amazing, Sir. It is like looking at an intensive breakdown and detail review of the actual KT, not a 1/16 build. Truly amazing. I'm inspired to get myself going again as I am recently retired and finally I have the time I want 'to play'. Now thanks to your inspiration, the desire is back again. Thanks and keep it coming.
