Yep, it's the Meng Toon King Tiger.

It is the same overall width, length and height of the Leman Russ... but the hull is a CM lower and the turret is a CM taller (so it evens out).

Hull length: 12 CM
Hull width: 7.8 CM
Overall height: 7.8 CM

Fantastic! that's actually a bit bigger than I imagined! I'm totally going to have to pick up a couple of the KV-2s and Ork-ify them!

Can't wait to see how your's looks painted!

It's got paint on... it's fully base-coated  ;) ... but I can't fully paint it until I have decided how it will be marked up :)

Just need some decals to arrive now :) :



I've ordered some decals from here:

http://domsdecals.com/

and another two tanks from EBay. They will be converted to be the same as this one.

Doh!

The colour looked so smooth, I somehow assumed that was the colour of the natural plastic - I should have figured that was not so based on the fact that the GUN BARRELS were not part of the original kit though!? (I am a bit of a thicko!)

... and so it begins again :) . Two more Punishers have arrived:



I have the pens, I have the lascannons and I have the sprue for the punisher cannon.

Once they are converted, that will be the first section of the tank company complete. Then another two lots of three and a command tank :) .

Just a quick post to show off the second painted tank:



The third tank has been washed and will start this week. It'll be getting a visible tank commander to denote it as a lead tank but he won't be a tank commander, rules wise... he'll just be a normal tank (he'll just have a normal helmet rather than a significantly leader-like hat/helmet).

See? I can paint things occasionally :)

Those look great! I've had my eye on the What a Tanker rules, but straight WWII tanks didn't seem all that appealing. These however!

Cheers :) .

I've got a little bit further now. The platoon leader has been sculpted so I can now get on with spraying the turret and finishing the painting :) :



Still no decals though :(
