1/6th scale Armortek Late production Tiger I

Post by armourguy on Wed Jul 15, 2015 1:55 am

Hi guys, I was invited here by Dave, and have been wanting to post for about a year now... but was too busy with focusing on various builds and getting parts to their customers to do much posting.

Like I posted on the other boards, One of the builds I have been working on was a commission build RC armortek Tiger I, After what seems like a mountain of work the tank is now complete!

The last of the tools, and cables were mounted. For the tools the Armorpax kit supplied units were used, for added realism I replaced the metal handles with real wood ones.

The gun cleaning staves were also added. These too were kit supplied and the only mod I made was the addition of the swab brush.

Other misc. bits were also added like the bow MG34, turret roof periscope prism, antenna base, kit supplied armorpax resin fire extinguisher and AA gun mount

Another part that was added was the starter plate. For this model the kit supplies you with a basic plate made from CNC aluminum. Rather than upgrading the kit supplied unit I instead modded one of my early pattern plates, adding the late pattern detailing.

The new plate was molded and has been added to the catalog.

Some more markings were also added. this would include the divisional logos on the front and rear (easier seen in video), and black center on the bustle bin numbering

Once the tank was done it was taken for another final test run, which it ran well, and broke the in the track's new paint

The engine compartment was also checked and tested to see if the functions were operational, they too were working.

While filming I ran into a first when a bird laded on the tank, then flew off shortly after... guess he liked the paint job Very Happy.

After he flew off the tank was driven some more then was placed into storage now awaiting delivery,

More pics were posted on the ECA facebook page, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

and a final update video was posted on youtube, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

in addition to the new video, the entire project playlist has been rearranged in chronological order so watching the build from start to finish is now much more easier.
The link to the playlist is here,

With the tank now officially completed, I have turned my attention back to the 222 armored car, and already have some more gun mount masters ready to mold. Once ready I will post more on that build.

I will also be starting another 1/6 commission build project that I will also post in the coming weeks, and more will follow. stay tuned!!
