In fact, there is a set of Königstiger transport tracks available right now (18 Feb. 2021). I got all excited at the idea until I saw the price. 8O Nonethless,I have bought from this seller before, and all went just fine.

Mr Surfacer 500 added to the front and sides for some texture.

Cast parts had a thicker mixture.

Ad Lav,

That JP is starting to come along nicely! I've almost forgot how "right" it looked in the beginning! Carry on, I'm following along! :thumbup:

Cheers,
Eric.

Nicely thought through project, Adam. What did you use for the front mud guard extensions? A nice detail often omitted. Excellent work.

Thanks Ralph.

Looking forward to getting the tracks and wheels on when the idlers arrive.

I cut the stock spronsons off and trimmed neatly along the front mudguards. Drilled out the position where the bolts lined up.

Ooh shiny wheels update!

Approached Patrick about some new hubs as he had done some for Ralph. A bit of tweaking and they fit the Tamiya King Tiger wheels/bearing perfectly.
