Tiger I 332, August, 1943 – Tamiya 1/48 diorama   Leave a comment

Along with the sci-fi stuff, I really enjoy doing historical armor work.  This is Tiger I number 332 of the Schwere Panzer-Abteilung 503 “Feldherrnhalle” on maneuvers near Bjelgorod, Russia. This is the 1/48 scale Tamiya Tiger I with the Voyager PE set and Tamiya figures and accessories.

This diorama is based on two sets of photos from the reference book Tigers In Combat I, one set showing a number of closeups of Tiger 332 being pulled from the mud, allowing for a very comprehensive set of closeup walk-around photos to allow maximum accuracy in the details. The other photo is the basis for the dio, of Tiger 231 from the same unit leaving a staging area in Bjelgorod on a dusty road in August with some rather casual looking infantry moving along with it.
