I used to mess with kits, but that was 40 yrs. ago. Tiger has complete interior.

I like your subtle shading and weathering! I'm finally ready to try a diorama. Via youtube I discovered using tile grout on a board, you can make a base and take off from there with detail.

Now if I could just paint figures. SW

figures are an art in themselves. Get a set of magnifiers for them it's a lot easier.
I still have to dig out those figures and some other stuff for you. I think there are some books on dioramas and painting.
Since I closed the shop I've got a little more time on my hands, so I can go looking for packed away items.
I've also been working on some firearms projects that I put off for 15+ years.

....completed this 1/32 scale A6-A of my squadron the VA-75 Sunday Punchers as it flew during Operation Linebacker II in 1972...this is as accurate paint and detail wise(including crew names) decals and ordnance carried during missions over North Vietnam that I can do...the kit is lacking many minor things detail-wise,but this is the best kit out there-they stopped production of these sets,so one has to make do with whatcha got...the crew of this particular aircraft was lost in Oct '72....loosing lots of detail in reducing image size and upload files...currently working on an A1H-D Skyraider/SPAD from my squadron that they flew over Vietnam during before we transitioned to these A-6 Intruders during early 70's...actually,I have 6 other models in the 'hangar' to build after I finish the SPAD :crzy:
