Hello friends
The Tiger I was the first tank to be equipped with an 88mm cannon which proved to be formidable on all battle fronts. I had to have it in my collection, from the Tamiya brand at 1/35 scale.

Tamiya's original tiger I remember it well first armour kit I built some 24 years ago now when I was twelve right after seeing Kelly's Heroes (not knowing they were T-34's mocked up to look like a tiger) but was a nice kit years later I stripped the paint off it and started rebuilding it and accurising it lot's from the spares box scratch building and PE added plus individual links (as the vinyl tracks tend to not sit on the road wheels unless you super glue the hell out of them) the fundamental shape of the tiger is there but compared to modern kits you'll notice the things wrong with it but you did a good job

You'll get better over time
I don't mean that to be nasty just a step in the right direction.
Keep it up and you will do good.

I remember that kit. It was good for its time. The only criticism I would offer is that the brown shading along the edges be toned down some on the next build.
Nice build. I have several Tigers hidden in my stash of kits to build.
