Sehr Schon! I really liked the minimum weathering and the applied Zimmerit is first-class.

Wow Stephan! This is only your second build? This is excellent; what are you going to be like when you have a couple of hundred under your belt?

Hello and thank you!
Happy to hear you like the Tiger.
It's indeed my second built. As the most of you, I did some scale modeling as a teenager, which is ages ago and now I discovered the hobby again.
Thanks to the sheer amount of tutorials on youtube and the broad range of weathering products, scalemodeling luckily has become beginners friendly.
There are so many techniques to explore and the To Do List is growing weekly.

Very nice, I like it! The weathering is rather subtle and not over the top... just the way I prefer myself.

Well done!

Wow! Stephan nailed it. The brown wash on the zimmerit and dry brushing work perfectly. The DAK wash ties it all together. Very subtle but very realistic. Great job.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"
