That second set I posted is making me go .

I have a good set from back in my Tech days and I need more screw drivers like I need another hole in my head.

Still, .

I finished building the tank late night this day.

I haven't painted the model-It's one of my Achilles heel.

I have placed one of my 1/35 tank in front of this monstrous German WWII tank.



Yes it is Hogwarts castle to the left-It's Wizarding World 3D Puzzle

I honestly prefer the 1/35 example because that is what I've always built in the past.

I have an old dinning table as my work bench and while I was building she was sitting beside on the table and watched..well more likely to see if there was some part she can run away with.

Which has happened before.

She didn't do this-Sitting on the table all the time.

My next project is Revell's Firebird Pontiac Trans AM 1/8 scale.

This model is within my price range-
I would if I could afford it, buy the Titanic Scale 1:200. Trumpeters

I've heard there are issues with the shape of the hull.

This was also new to me..Have seen a lot of video clip on yt, where people share parts of their build.

What I know so far about the hull is that there isn't any portlights(I think you call them these round windows on a ship)

In almost every video I've seen they start with drilling holes en mass in the hull.

Edit
I have built HMS Hood in scale 1:200
Wouldn't it be perfect to have the Bismarck beside Hood, in same scale ?
That is what I have been thinking-Bismarck or Titanic
End edit

I just saw this:



I'm not so sure about the metal doors and 1/12th scale is a little too large for my surroundings but..



PS- Make sure you turn on subtitles.

Wow, very impressive Tiger in 1/16 scale. Did it fit together well, was it a nice kit? It's a giant against the 1/35 tank.

It was a pleasure to build the model-Only disadvantage was that I didn't have the correct screwdriver to some of the small screws-I did manage to get them tighten though.

I only wish I had same skills in painting than I have in model building.

So I recommend Hobby Boss, even though there was a lack of painting informations.
