I got this awesome 1/56 Jagdtiger kit by Waffenkammer Miniatures a couple of years ago. The Waffenkammer kits are usually very well made and this one was no exception. The only addition I made to this kit were the scratch built handles on the hatches. Otherwise it is straight out of the box.
As this one is a gaming piece as well as a model, I wanted to paint it up using very heavy color modulation. I wanted this model to really stand out from the gaming table, and therefore the paint job was going to be all about exaggeration!
I really like the result. Also, I entered this Jagdtiger in a couple of modelling competitions and managed to win prizes each time! This piece also defeated von Wirtzenau’s (my Achtung Painter buddy) 1/48 Tamiya Königstiger, to his absolute dismay. It is really nice to see that you can actually have success in modelling competitions with a game piece as well!
