Although I have built many WWII armored vehicles', I think the Tiger tank was the most advanced in technology of its time, it was also one of my favorite builds.

Our favorite T-Shirt NEW

A shirt with a peach finish has usually undergone a process in which the fabric has been very lightly distressed - this gives it an extra soft feel. Men's and ladies shirts with a peach or carbon finish are usually casual shirts.buy Ladies t shirt online

Raney's Tiger NEW

I'm sure Raney's Tiger was made by 'good'hard-working Germans, all the bolts were tight - and it may actually have survived, clobbered a few Grants and Shermans, and is now at the Yankee Aberdeen proving grounds, having survived all kinds of testing and back-engineering efforts, as well as all kinds of 'camo' schemes - might even be an invisible target for some DARPA program.... Cheers . X

Shermans NEW
by: Anonymous

Shermans - now there's a less controversial tank - unless you consider its namesake - William Tecumseh - now, there's a controversial figure for a tank if ever there was one. Grant. Lee. Lincoln... ?? Abrahams? Oh, right - Abrams....

Thanks for the stars. NEW

From John Raney, well, thank you for the history lesson, next time I decide to submit a picture of one of my model tanks, I will choose one that was modeled after a less controversial vehicle with a more reliable performance record. My particular Tiger tank however, was built with no slave labor and I'm sure I tightened down all the bolts.

Tiger not all It's Cracked Up to Be? NEW
by: SONARman

Nice model. I have a couple of Tigers, too! I've read recently, however, that Tigers were not all they were cracked up to be- consuming so much fuel they were often 'parked' and told to 'wait'- sitting targets for P-51s, Typhoons and Thunderbolts - so much so they were issued improved anti-aircraft MGs. Though fearsome in appearance, and certainly wielding awesome firepower with that 88mm gun, Tigers were assembled in large part by forced slave labor - starved Jews in the factories working under abominable conditions - and the workers ,too, did their part in 'the war effort'- they sabotaged those Tigers at every chance they had - leaving bolts half -tightened, stripping threads on purpose, crossing wires, putting sand and debris in crankcases - I even read one account where the throttle came off in the driver's hand, and other accounts of how Tiger crews constantly cursed the folks who built the monsters. Maybe big and fearsome - but in many cases, built like a Chinese ship - 'Junk'. Fearsome in appearance - but not made with nearly the care shown in your work!
