Revell's King Tiger finished

Here it is, my second tank (see photos below).  There are some things not quite right, the rusted spare track links are too rusted (orange) and the chipping is probably way over done for a machine that had a pretty short shelf life but, I am pleased with it.  At the end of the day that is what really counts.  I do find that building for a magazine or even more so, for a commission, there is considerable pressure to build for the customer be that an editor, the readership or person who will receive the model in the post.  There is a danger that this will make a project a chore, the answer is to pick projects you will enjoy doing thus keeping up the enthusiasm.  The pressure (often self induced) to produce something to another's standard can lead to burn out.
