Tiger II – Photo gallery

Here’s the photo gallery of my model of Tiger II, one of the most powerful and most feared tanks of the Second World War!

This model of Tiger II, a German heavy tank of the Second World War, is the 30th I've finished so far. I started it in July 2020 and, after a long pause, I finally completed it in December 2021.

Tiger II – Camouflage painting

Painting the camo scheme of this Tiger II was quite funny: I chose the typical late-war “ambush camouflage”, or “Hinterhalt-Tarnung”.

Some years ago, during a fair, I stumbled upon this Tiger II kit: this vehicle has always fascinated me, and which often sported some camouflage more interesting than usual. I chose a three-tone (yellow, red and green) scheme with spots of different colors, the so-called ambush camouflage —or Hinterhalt-Tarnung in German.

Bergepanzer 1 – Photo gallery

Assembling this model of Bergepanzer 1 has been very peculiar, due to the crane and several cables. Here’s the photo gallery!

The 28th model I made represents a US-built M88 A1G armored recovery vehicle (ARV), operated by the German armed forces (Bundeswehr) under the designation Bergepanzer 1. It took approximately one year and 9 months to build, from September 2018 to late May 2020.
