Smooth, some very subtle shading and weathering, i like it.

Only suggestion, if you have a pinvise and small drill bit (0.7mm or something), drill out the end of the MG34 barrel on the front hull. Doesnt need to be deep, but adds a little extra detail.

Heh, i think its called AMS, Anal Modellers Syndrome. When you look at a model and cannot resist thinking "I could re-do those weld seams" or "thats not the right shaped bolt" you know you have a problem! lol

I did just notice though, you forgot to add the little lifting lugs on the side of the right armoured exhaust cover. And the front spare track mounting bar.

I know, its a disease. lol, sorry!

Heh, single actually!

Tigers are one of my favourite subjects though. I have a Tamiya 1/16 one on the go as well, but its a way slow build. And am doing a 1/35 with full interior, so of course by doing research i pick up on every little anal retentive detail!

Though to be fair i do get a lot of my attention to detail from my job. Im an IT systems admin for the fire brigade. I look after our 000 communicatons center (equivalent to 911 in the US), and ss you can imagine working there, lives very much depend on us getting everything perfect and keeping it working properly.
