Constructed King Tiger

In the process of sorting some old gaming stuff out I found a bundle of old SDD models. These are 15mm metal castings that I bought back in the 1990s. It makes me think that the other metal models that I have been painting are also SDD.

This box was mainly late war stuff and included a King Tiger. The model consists of four parts: a pair of tracks, the hull and a turret. This is a very nice clean casting, but is quite a heavy model as a result.

It went together very easily, but doesn’t quite sit flat.

Certainly not as detailed as the Flames of War model, the next stage will be a white undercoat.

  1. I’ve got some Humber armoured cars – do you really think your Tiger II is going to be able to stand up to them? Why don’t you just hit it with a hammer and paint it as an objective?!

    1. I would be slightly concerned about the hammer…
      It probably will be converted or painted up as an objective, especially as I have now seen these on the Battlefront website…


  2. Paint it up nicely and then add some foliage camouflage on top of it, and nobody will ever notice that the base model is not very detailed. Of course, I’m not sure how much leaf camouflage there would be in a Bulge scenario, given that it’s the middle of winter…
    So would the Humber armoured cars stand up to being hit with this model?
