Bit more time on the Tiger today.

Figure built and posed in the cupola.

Headlight bases made and glued on - Tiger 131 didn’t have any light when captured.

Foot step and grab handle fixed.

Looking more like 131 now.

Still got to track down some Tamiya mudflaps and an mg dome.

I havn’t ruled out your offer of the mudflaps quite yet.
