Description:

A high poly model of the tiger II tank used by Germany during WW2. Includes a basic rig for the turret and gun. Adding a rig for the wheels shouldn't be too hard the way the tracks were made.

    A very beautiful model. Unfortunately, there are a few inaccurate details, even allowing for the many small variations of the vehicle. First, the machine-gunner's and driver's periscopes should be similar to the gunner's periscope -- with an open back, and the actual periscope underneath. Second, the upper front corners of the hull don't show the correct seam -- this should look like the seam in the front, but with just three 'fingers', with the side armor being the middle finger, and about half the thickness of the frontal armor (80mm vs 150mm). Finally, when rendered, there is a beautiful Zimmerit coating visible on the model, but in all of the old photos I found, when this coating was used none of the front seams were visible. It was just too thick.

    Having said all that, please make no mistake -- this model is a masterpiece. I love it! Really. Beautifully detailed and a joy to see. This subject won't be for everyone, but certainly superbly done.

    Thanks for a great share! Peace.

    (PS: For those who don't know, the Zimmerit coating was commonly used to keep magnetic mines from sticking.)

    Tanks for those details! I wish I spent more time on the research/reference aspects of the project, but I didn't really have the time. That said, at least those inaccuracies are quickly fixed!

    LOL Amen to that! Definitely minor points, and easily fixed. Really, they only show because of the superb detail in every other way! Thanks again! Peace.

    PS: I love your Tirpitz and U boat models as well. Something about that WWII German steel, I guess.

    I used to build models (the physical kind ;) ) a few years back. German WW2 ships and such were the best ones in stock at the store I went too, and looked the best in my opinion. I've made many of these 3d models to make even better versions as opposed to my shoddy workmanship.

    This is a very nice model in every respect. I admire those who go the extra mile for historical accuracy. And I always enjoy it people know even more about the accuracy. It inspires me to be as accurate as my skills will allow on my models that deal with history.

    Great model and interesting comment. Thanks.

    This makes my Un submitted Tiger II paper model look sick. How did you get the plans and textures, etc ?

    Sorry for the late reply; I usually don't check blendswap often. I didn't use any detailed plans, just whatever came up with a google search for Tiger II blueprints. The detail textures like the metal were mostly from some stock library. The zimmerit was the hardest texture to find, but that was from an image of a plastic tank model I believe.
