Judging by the response to the first video in this build series we did need another Tiger, and Takom seems to be on a real winner with this release.

Last week we got to the initial painting of the complex camouflage of this best - it left me in the odd position of just how to go forward and what options to choose, the video for that is here...

Part III: With the Takom Tiger built and painted, it’s now time to show you the steps I took to weather and present this unique camouflage scheme of the 102nd Panzer Division.
I have to confess I was a little frozen with indecision with how to progress with this one due to the unique colour scheme, but I managed to push through using a mix of techniques and products to give me a satisfying result.

The completed kit in a walk around...
The weathering was done using a mix of washes and pigments from Ammo and I was able to recreate the improvised camouflage scheme so often seen on German vehicles using a range of premade landscaping material.

 A close in series showing more of the details afforded to the kit...
To celebrate the Tiger series I’m giving away a Mid Production Takom Tiger – so be sure to check the video for details.
