I have started building with the Tiger Tanks. Painted one to see how to paint such a small model and weathered it. What do you think ?

Drilled out the gun muzzle break - didn't like the solid look - this looks much better.Drilled out the gun muzzle break - didn't like the solid look - this looks much better.

The finished model – washed with a dark brown, chipping with Panzer grey & decals set.

For decals – since this Tiger has zimmerit, I used a decal softner to “melt the decals” so that they grab the zimmerit texture – giving the illusion they are painted on.
