Hello fellows plastic fans ,

I am new in the block so let me present myself. I am 35 years old and I come from Belgium.
I am in the ' plastic business ' since I was a kid but I have more experience now !
One of my friend own a model shop so I am never far from plastic kits !
I have started a big project; Tamiya 1/16 king Tiger (not RC). I have books, photoetched parts and some Verlinden stuff. Now I am looking for comments or tips for this baby so if one of you have made this kit, please feel free to guide me. Thank you !

Cheers !

phil

Hey welcome Shad, glad to have you on board!

Het is goed dat er nog eens een Belg bijkomt, zijn er te wijnig van hier en we moeten die "Hollanders" toch weerwerk geven.

Thanks a lot for this warm welcome and already productive links :-) :-) :-)

Do you know where I could find towing cables for such a big scale (1/16 ?)

Just a comment Ronny, mijn vlaams is niet veel goed maar dank u voor uw welkom !

Phil,

This is discussed before and you can find it here

Replacing towing cables


You just need to adjust the thicknes to your scale (whell that is what I would do)
