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.
This site was created late in 2008, just a few years after first becoming involved in wargaming. As you can tell by the name, WAB was my introduction to this community. I appreciate the following and comments this blog receives, and give all thanks and credit to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It may seem odd that this blog appears to focus on the folly of mankind's continuous warfare, but I believe I can still enjoy this hobby so long as I put Him first in all I do. Maranatha!

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

Great looking Tigers! You have a generous friend unless he is a heavy beer-drinker.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jonathan. Well, I wouldn't say he's a heavy drinker, but I have yet to see h turn down a beer or two. He's actually given me a bunch of miniatures in the past. Mostly plastics. I think he realized he's more into lead. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
Beautiful looking tanks! My favourite of WWII.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Michal. I must admit, German tanks look great. I suppose some Soviet stuff are also cool too. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
Wonderful work on the two tigers Dean and looks like you have plenty to keep you busy, thanks to your beer drinking buddy!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Keith! I was gonna run over a case of IPA to my buddy, but he left for a vacation with his wife in Spain this morning. Catch up with him when he gets back in a few weeks. A few months ago they were in Turkey and left the day before the earthquake. He said he went to Gallipoli and Troy, among other sites. Kindest regards, DeanDelete
The camo looks great and you certainly have the hang of the spray brush. Size difference between the tanks is marginally really but three tigers in 28mm will make for a challenging game or very large gameReplyDelete
Thanks for the kind words, Matt. Yes, three Tigers would be a challenging game. Haven't tried playing it yet but Bolt Action Tank War uses three tanks per unit so might give it a try someday. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
Amazing Dean. Carry on like this and you may start getting commissions.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the very kind compliment, Richard. I do plan to work on the technique more in the future. Kindest regards, DeanDelete
Tiger fever:) I have the same thing going on with my Sci-fi stuff, always got to paint the big bad boys. Nicely done, and for braving the airbrush. I've had one for about five years now and can't get myself to use it. The way of the brush is my code of honor;)ReplyDelete
Lol. Thanks for the kind words, Kevin. Yes, it seems like the more I airbrush the more comfortable it gets. There's a learning curve for sure. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
Excellent looking Tigers, great finish, I wouldn't have a problem using any of them with 28mm figures to be honest and what a generous friend!ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot, Iain. Appreciate your kind words. Warmest regards, DeanDelete
