Product Description

Great Book by Osprey Publishing. 80 pages
The Tiger tank is probably the most famous tank of World War II, and one that has attained almost mythical status. Both the Tiger I and its successor, the Tiger II, were used as bases for other German vehicles, including the Sturmtiger, Jagdtiger, Ferdinand and Elefant. The Tiger tanks remain among the most popular armoured vehicles built by modellers. Existing modelling guides to the Tiger are almost exclusively devoted to 1/35th scale ignoring the recent explosion in popularity of small-scale modelling and the huge number of state-of-the-art kits and aftermarket accessories released in 1/72nd scale. Almost every type of accessory available for the popular 1/35th scale is now available for 1/72nd scale kits, including photoetched detail and zimmerit sets, turned metal gun barrels, dry transfers and decals, resin engine sets, and conversion sets for rare and unusual variants. This new book in the Osprey Modelling series covers a wide range of vehicles based on the chassis of the Tiger I and II tanks in 1/72nd scale. It provides a detailed guide to modelling the basic tank versions the Tiger I and II together with the Sturmmrser Sturmtiger (Tiger I variant), Jagdtiger (Tiger II variant) and the Panzerjger Tiger (P) Elefant tank destroyer. A variety of camouflage schemes, ranging from winter whitewash through to mottled and hard-edged camouflage patterns are described in depth. Aspects such as working with, photoetched parts, resin aftermarket sets, scratchbuilding, the appropriate use of figures, creating groundwork, and replicating interior detail and heavy battle damage are also dealt with in the step-by-step builds, ensuring this books appeal to a wide variety of modelling abilities.
