Tiger #100 construction

The construction started... with a few problems: the most difficult was when I tried to bend the left front mudguard over an open flame (although working with open fire to achieve this is highly NOT recommended). The result was one side of the mudguard almost melted.

I had a very hard time trying to engrave the weld seams on the turret and on the hull. Tamiya extra thin cement and a sharp hobby knife proved to be most helpful.

I used a small piece of PE to make the rain shield over the gun sight. Cables for headlights were also added.
