Thanks again for all of the positive responses. The Tiger Shark was an absolute pleasure to paint. A few tips if you plan on buying one yourself:
A. Think long and hard about how you are going to display it, and then how you are going to store it. Mine is screwed into a perspex rod that can be undone and it all fits back in the box it came in.
B. Wash, wash and wash again! I know this is mentioned every time someone puts a Forgeworld model together, but I'm so glad I spent so much time in the prep.
C. Check the pieces fit. I was pleasantly surprised that all of the pieces fitted with minor gaps and alterations needed. Be careful though, the cockpit section does come out, but with a couple of layers of paint on all the pieces, it's a bit tight and tends to scratch the paintwork.
D. Don't forget to paint the cockpit before you put the whole thing together, it makes life a lot easier.
And after telling you all I've finished this Cadre it's on to the next one...
As soon as I've got a couple more bits and pieces done, I'll start a new thread, and I might add some of the fluff to the library
