King Tiger that is.
I recently refurbished a hideous King Tiger II painted a couple years ago, and decided to try something new. I thought I'd add some Zimmerit paste to it.
I found quite a few tutorials, and stuck with the one that uses PlayDough. One embarassing trip to the dollar store later, and I started my experiment.

Not perfect, but it's the first time I ever try anything like this.
I have since nearly finished the Zimmerit, but I wonder what you guys (and gals?) actually think about it before I paint it. Very honest answers are appreciated (and congratulated), I will not be offended.
Next time it is sunny (which may be Wednesday!), I will take more pictures. I am also on the edge of purchasing multiple Russian kits (Mainly PSC) off Emodels.com, so expect to see some Soviet models over the summer.
Thanks for reading,

I found this little surprise at my local Hobby Shop a couple of months ago and was surprised since this beauty is discontinued (Why is it that all 1/72 M7 kits get discontinued?). It was the only one there, and the only time I ever saw it. I will be getting two more this summer since it turns out a shop in Montreal has plenty, and my Doughboys need some mobile artillery support.
I don't understand why the box shows Brits using it, since they don't even supply a British crew!
Amazingly frustrating and time consuming for a little Matchbox kit, but definitely worth it.
Thanks for reading, up next are my PSC M4A1's, and a WIP on applying Zimmerit on an old refurbished Tiger II I built a couple years ago.
