I worked on the base coat this weekend and finally completed it. I initially didn't like the RAL 8017 paint mixture I started out with and decided to re-do this part of the camo. I used a mixture of Tamiya and Vallejo paints diluted with retarder, acrylic and Lacquer thinner. I am fairly happy with how it turned out. The tri-tonal colurs used were RAL 8017, RAL 6003 and RAL 7028. I also applied a a tri-tonal filter from MIG Productions.

I have more or less completed the build now. Here are some pictures of Tiger 211 before final primer and after. I added the co-axial MG as one of the last steps. The turret is just sitting lose on the hull. I have not attached it as yet. She's just about ready for paint.
