The kit comes on four sprues, apologies for the poor picture. The grey circle in the lower right sprue is William Killen for scale.
As was the case with the M4A3 model, the kit is reasonably easy to build, and to aid painting the chassis and the body can be kept separate. The one piece track does have problems with lack of detail on the treads but does mean there are no gaps. The two sets of road wheels are almost complete so I have a set left over for scratch building.
Three quarter view of the initial camouflage application. The Plastic Soldier Company aerosol paint seems to be a bit shiny (I do shake the can for two minutes) and the Vallejo paints seem to require a couple of coats to get a consistent finish over the sprayed paint. I have read that others overspray with a matt varnish before brush painting.
The base is PSC German Armour, the camouflage is Vallejo German Camouflage Brown Black and German Camouflage Dark Green. The chassis was left with Chaos Black then the wheels were brush painted Dark Yellow followed by camouflage colours. I might (spray) paint the wheels separately on a future build and add them to the tracks later.
The decals were from the Warlord Games range, I bought the German pack at Colours in 2013.
The balkenkreus is towards the rear, which made it easier to fit under the tow cable. I used Humbrol DecalFix to assist with decal placement. Each face was completed in turn and once dried, Humbrol matt acrylic varnish (49?) was used to fix them in place. This was after the debacle on putting the US numbers on The Device (see previous) where I dislodged one number while applying another decal.
The tank was weathered with Citadel Typhus Corrosion and Stirland Mud textured paints to build up the mud followed by washes of Citadel Agrax Dirtshade.
Overall the model was fun to build, there were no problems that stand out and no filling required.
I would have preferred the tow cables to have been separate, easier to paint and some earlier examples do not seem to have had them fitted, or they were fitted differently.
I cannot compare it to the Warlord games Tiger as I have not built one yet.
