well final after ,a year and finished,The fall off Berlin,
I ,Have decided to do,another one,of the fall of Berlin,this be about the 4th or so,I have done,
based on this picture,there,is a lot of why,s,about the picture,and real not a lot of info,about how,she come to be there,
but I,find a good topic to do,
I did have some mmore info,but have lost,it some how,but along with ,her there is meant to be a pak,as well,but I,cannot
find out which one,don,t think a 44,there a big gun,maybe more like a 40 or 38,would seam more,like it,
will be using the 1.35 kit below,
do hope you like my idea for this,:rolling:

Great kit and subject matter Monica, can't wait to see it come along.
Don't sweat the rivet counting details, it's the message and the atmosphere you wish to convey that's important.

Cheers, Jim:hugging-face:

Looks like a good idea. though I think the tiger in the photo is a Tiger 2, aka King Tiger. But what the hej, it is a great idea nether the less.

Great idea for a diorama Monica

Ian, not sure how you can see a KT? has the photo been changed?

Its a early mid tiger I with smooth dish road wheels.

The Zevzda will be ideal.

I am sure someone theorised the Tiger I was from a training ground and brought in at the end to help defend Berlin?

How are you going to make the Linden trees?

Looking forward to your build

Regards

ta,Jim,glad that you do like the idea,and so true,real,you must have more to do than count rivets,lol,
I think you know I,do have a fondness,for the Germans at the end,do feel there pain, :smiling:

Same comment as Jim. Don't worry about it and make it. It'll be good.

ta,Richard,thats my plan,enjoy it as a build,

ta,Ian,its a bit hard to say real,some say as you did,other,s say a tiger 1,I think thats what I,like,so meany if,and whats and buts,about the,
whole thing.,I think real the main,real difference is the exhaust on them,most likely wrong,but a ,that stands out the most,always drop,
and tree branch or two,over that part,:rolling:

I admit I'm no expert, I just thought the turret looked my like the one on a tiger two.
it is a little hard to tell,as from whats written,its saying a tiger 1,but as said,there is a lot of if,s and buts about the old girl,
what I can do is use the early,and if by some change get to go to a swap meet pick up a late and switch them out lol, :rolling:
but real just won,t to enjoy be,back doing what we all love so much,
