How to Build Tamiya's Steel Wheeled Tiger I
This new modelling manual from the publishers of Tamiya Modelling Magazine consists of 58 pages printed on very high quality paper. The author is well known uber-modeller Angus Creighton who takes the modeller step by step through 5 beautifully done Tiger I steel wheeled models (plus one Borgward) in full colour. Each specific Tiger I is covered in great detail through numerous images showing both the completed model and in progress images.
The specific vehicles that are covered are:
- 300 of sPzAbt 505
- 009 of sSSPzAbt 101
- 321 of sPzAbt 504
- A12 of Grossdeutchland
- F01 OF Kampfgruppe Schulze
Far from being a simple study of 5 Tigers, the first 27 pages of the book cover pretty well every aspect of AFV construction, detailing and finishing. Topics include: applying texture, zimmerit, hull and turret features, markings, tracks, battle damage, painting & weathering and figures. Again, all of these topics are covered with excellent quality full colour images showing each topic in a step by step nature. In addition, interspersed in each section are images from the Vimoutier Tiger I showing specific details.
In summary, this is the best how to book I have yet seen for AFV modelling. Even if you have no interest in Tiger I steel wheel versions, every modeller can benefit from the excellent tips and techniques that are covered in the book. For the german armour fan, run out and buy this book . now!
An upcoming volume will cover the non-steel wheeled versions.
Very highly recommended.
