Hello :). I recently rediscovered scale modelling after randomly browsing on the net. I've done some regular scale modelling as a wee lad some 10-ish years ago (1/72 and 1/35 mostly). Back then the RC models were way too expensive for me. Glad to see we have more affordable options now. I bought a Taigen Tiger 1 from G.F. Armour to have somewhat of an idea of what to strive for myself in scale 1/16.
I have a stock Torro Jagdpanther (with metal hull, wheels and tracks) waiting to be repainted. It arrived with some damage as well so it'll be a fun project to repair and repaint it to a good standard. Although it's been a while I hope I'll be able to do a good job with all the help that's available online these days, and I bought some good books as well.

Pictures of my G.F. Armour Tiger 1 :)

Welcome to the Forum :thumbup: :wave: :clap:
A very nice presentation of a Tiger 1 Late,
Before you sign off on it I hope you wont forget to remove the Spare radio aerial storage tube from the Left (As viewed from the drivers seat) rear flank of the Tank body,
Every Heng Long/Taigen and Torro Tiger 1 has two of them But the real Tiger 1 only had one with the exception of the command Tank which had its second spare aerial holder across the rear backplate of the Tank.
Enjoy the Forum and any questions please feel free to ask and if you know stuff then please tell us.

Maybe I worded it wrong but the Tiger is painted by G.F. Armour, not by me. It is however how I would like to paint my models in the future as well :)
