  1. hey, the gun mantle is also broken on this model too, the triangle cheeks stick through it because it is set about 6 inches back into the turret

    you can see it in the screenshots

  2. I have a little suggestion.
    That Tiger I was my very first 1:35 model (I bought a Tamiya, long time ago...).
    If I remember well, the early model, the one who fought in Tunisia, was fully painted with dark green, like this one:

    In fact, I don't know if any of the few Tigers who fought in Tunisia was painted with the classic dark yellow Afrika Korps scheme, because Tunisia had, by that time, grass, not sand. That's why they applied green camo, not yellow. Of course I might be wrong, but anyway, those are my 2 cents.

    Congratulations for an excellent model!

  3. I've found a picture: the Bovington Tiger:

    Some say it is the best historical restoration: they used the same pattern originally found in the tank, which was a "medium green" over a "sand brown" pattern. Others say that, in fact, that green was a thin layer of olive drab, captured from US troops. Who knows.

    1. I am currently working on an alternate 'Tunisian' themed skin based on the suggested photos.

  7. the gray version of the tank has a large black rectangle where the headlamp used to be, its kinda annoying :)

  8. Ahaa that's because the gray is basically the default skin with the wheels converted to the early type, i did not even know the headlamp had been removed.

    the credits are a bit confusing here, as I did the textures for the filters on both versions and modified the wheels on the gray, the desert skin had already been done and crimson did the turret to match.

    I believe its linked to the dropbox acc so I can have it fixed soon as I'm done packing up the pz1

      also, yeah, that would explain the black box XI

  11. For some reason who you die the turret number changes to Tigerr 1332, which fought near Kursk. Is this a glitch, or a different skin? If so how to I get it to be that number premanantly(Tiger 1332 is my fav tank model that I have)?

  12. This seems to have stopped me from putting on emblems and inscriptions, any way to get it back?

    1. If you are using the gray version I fixed it you just need to download the gray version again, but you should know this site is basically inactive

    2. Now i noticed :)
      If i only this mod it works fine, i tried to use it with the open hatch one but the wheels from this one change to default.
      The problem is when you mix these mods, it give you something but it takes away from the other.

      Anyway, keep up the good work, the Tiger definetly needs more attention in this game.

      If you are still active modding, you can look on Facepunch, they are porting stuff from ALL games (models, textures, sounds etc), you could find there some great assets to bring them to WOT (don't forget the Tiger tho hahaha)

      If it would be as easy as counter strike source to mod, i would definetly help but this game is giving me a headache when it comes to modding.
