Tiger Hunt - 1/48th Tamiya and AFV Club Tigers Finished

Tiger Hunt – 1/48th Tamiya and AFV Club Tigers Finished

Took a little while to finish these, mainly due to the drying period of the AK Interactive oil washes. The recommended drying time for these are from 12-24 hours. Since this was the first time using them, I went for the full 24-hours as I didn’t want it to react badly with the final matte coat of Krylon spray.

The AFV Club kit on the left is supposed to belong to the 102nd Heavy Tank Battalion which served in Normandy. The Tamiya kit on the right is supposed to belong to the 505th Heavy Tank Battalion which served on the Eastern Front. 

Used one of the Bandai figures for the AFV Club tank; the Tamiya kit came with the commander.

The oil wash was used rather sparingly on the zimmerit of the AFV Tiger. When the wash was partially dried, I used a brush with very little thinner on it to wipe away some of the wash to lighten it.

The decals came with the kits and decal setting solution was used. It worked well setting the decals into the zimmerit.

A bit too big for 28mm figures, but they were a nice project to familiarize myself with the airbrush some more.

The picture above shows the two 1/48th Tigers next to a Corgi 1/50th Tiger on the far left. The Corgi looks good with 28mm figures, IMO.

My buddy dropped off a bunch of 1/48th kits he had sitting collecting dust for years – all he wanted was a some beer for them. Here are the kits below – plan to start on the Sherman first.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out the blog and current projects. Until next time, wishing you all the best in your endeavors!
