Daniel, thank you.

Very interesting PE-job. In particular the tool clamps might be pretty challenging.

Hi fellas, Thought it time to build a big kitty so I'm in with this:


Been working on this for awhile, but finally getting around to posting some pics. This is not gonna be just any kitty


Second attempt at zimm using two part epoxy and a Trumpeter zimm tool


Back end done, added some PE screens.


Got some paint on, wheels are done too


Here's the turret, not your usual color.....



Still need to paint tools/tracks and wash and weather.

In Addition to the Jagdtiger I've started with a Panther G.

The Jagdpanther is out of competition as I'd started with it before the campaign has begun.







Many of the parts even the tiny ones are being dryfitted.

In the meanhwhile I've replaced the grab handles with wire.



Jupiter, what are the scales of the cats?

Assembly has been finished except the grab handles of the rear doors and hatches which I'm about to replace with thin wire.

Due to some fitting issues I have switched to an other quarter scale kit: Tamiya's Jagdtiger



Only a few parts were being removed and assembled.

The metal barrel is provided by Aber.

Awaiting his fate in Dr. Deadly’s dank laboratory...


our caged cat is definitely NOT happy–


...but perhaps a poorly secured door will be his chance at freedom...!

And now... Rust!

After wetting the entire cage with paint thinner, I applied exaggerated rust effects using Raw Umber, Burnt Umber, and Burnt Sienna Winsor & Newton artist’s oils.

Dr. Deadly may have been an evil genius, but he clearly wasn’t much for maintenance!

Tim,
That is phenominal!


Thanks Gary!

The cat’s cage was sprayed with Tamiya IJN Sasebo Arsenal Grey (XF-77). To vary the surface a bit I also hit it with slightly lighter Tamiya Neutral Grey (XF-53) highlights in an airbrushed cloud pattern. Unfortunately, this color variation proved to be so subtle it wasn’t even visible!

Oh, well. I tried it again adding a similar cloud pattern with darker Tamiya German Grey (XF-63) shadows.

This worked better, but I wonder if even this will make a difference once the rust effects are applied..?

With the addition of green eyes (Tamiya XF-5 Flat Green with XF-3 Flat Yellow) and a wash of Grumbacher Raw Umber artist’s oil overall, the nasty Feral Cat is painted.

After a final coat of Testors Lusterless lacquer spray to knock down the shine, I applied dabs of Future gloss acrylic to put the malevolent gleam back into his eyes.

Now to cage the little beastie...
