From SteveM: 15mm German Kingtiger with replacement barrel (6 Points)

Scale : 15mm (1/100)
Mfg : Battlefront Miniatures
Product : gbx14
Material : metal and resin
Paints: automotive primer, Vallejo Model Color, Winsor & Newton Oil, AK enamel washes, AMMO paint, AMMO pigments, gloss varnish, matt vanish
Details: 1 tank

During assembly of this tank the barrel was glued in with the wrong orientation for the muzzle break.  When I removed it and reglued it I thought it would be cool to give it the factory primer color.






regards,
SteveM.

Nice way of adding some variety on this one! And I like that he looks much cleaner, compared to the grubby Konigstiger from earlier today like he just rolled out of the factory from his repairs. 
Six more points for you Steve, and three more posts to come. Shall we guess what else you've got for us?

  5. I have read about a few needing replacement barrels so it's a cracking move. Especially it being nice and clean after a quick scrub

  9. My favorite type of spot color...battlefield repair! It does pump them up to veteran status too! ;)
