Meng Toon Tiger I...

...building the Meng kit

Another kit I chose to have a go at purely for some fun and a bit of relaxation.  In the same way I have built examples of the Cute seties of caricature aircraft from Tiger Models, so Meng also have gone in for some of these caricature style models which seem to be fashionable in recent times.  As well as a few aircraft, they have done a couple of tanks and the one I chose to try is their Tiger I.  It is designed to encourage the younger modeller in particular and can be assembled without the need for glue.  The main parts I put together without using glue, just to see how it went, though I did use glue to fix one or two of the smaller details into place, just to make sure they stay there.  The wheels all go round rather than being fixed in place and the tracks are supplied as one piece bands which fit well over the running gear, but which can then rotate with the wheels once it is built.

The fit of parts was good and assembly was quite quick.  It just remains to paint it now...but I'll update this when that get done...

I bought mine through Tiger Hobbies Ltd here in the UK
