Sd.Kfz. 182 King Tiger (Porsche Turret) Dragon kit# 6189 1/35

This is the 182 King Tiger from Dragon( kit# 6189) pro built with applied zimmerit and medium weathering. Decals and paint represent s.Pz.Abt. 503, Normandy 1944. This was the first time I did zimmerit and didn't like it went back into the closet for a long while. Pulled it back out last week and decided it wasn't all that bad so I knocked it out. I'm glad I did, It looks great. All doors will open, turret will turn and gun elevates.
Painted in Model Master acrylics and metalizers followed with Georgian oils and Mungyo soft pastels and oil pastels. Finished with Polly Scale Flat Finish.
