Here is my 1:35 scale Tamiya Elefant.
A detailed ten page article will appear in Tamiya Model Magazine International, Issue 202 (August 2012, on sale July 19th). It will cover the build and zimmerit.
Painting and weathering will be in TMMI Issue 203 (Sept 2012, on sale Aug 16th).
The tracks come from the test-shot, hence their grey plastic. The production kits' tracks will be in brown polystyrene.
The zimmerit was made using 'Holts Cataloy Knifing Putty' from Halfords.
Note the Blu-Tack temporarily holding on the fenders!
