@Dmitry,

Well worth the wait! I don’t come here as often as I use to been very busy with other life things but was sure happy to see more progress on your build. Truly inspiring! You’re creative talent is leaving us with a great piece of history, on the technical working detail side of a Kingtiger that we would otherwise not be aware of. Keep up the excellent work!

I do not know myself, but already in the course of 8 years every day I do this model. I do not do it, only on those days when I was on vacation.
Perhaps this is my mission in this world

P.S.
btw, new video - "Rear turret hatch"

I really like this dunkelgelb color.

The insanity is real!

No, seriously Dmitry; there is no need any more for reference books, pictures or other stuff once this build is complete. Your detailing is just mind blowing big time.

Keep up the excellent work Dmitry!

Thank you, very nice video. But I did`t learn anything new for myself. I do not mind, let the link be here .

I hope to show you soon the photo/video of the periscopes. They took me just a huge amount of time .

Hello guys!
I apologize for the long break, but this work, as always, took much longer than planned. But I did it!

That hatch is just the hatch of all the hatches ever done by any modeller, ever - period!

Know i repeat myself but the work, detail and effort you put in Dmitry is breathtaking.

And no excuses, Christmas, new years eve and all that takes is time as well as scratch building parts with top of the line details
