    the armor is a little thin. they must have had a real tiger for many of the castings they used.

  5. Terry says:

  6. Mummeli says:

    So, does it even work? I don’t mind, if it doesn’t shoot, but does it even run? Or does it just stand and look pretty?

    Not impressed.

    Very nice….but why?

  8. Nimator says:

    Cool! It’s a smaller tank than I thought: Is this one scale 1:1?

  9. Sulik says:

    Nice Tiger.

  10. Osip says:

    It should say, “How to build something that LOOKS like a tank”.

    Impressive, but NOT a tank. And certainly NOT a Tiger tank. Although, I can see why, they are not that many of them out there.
    After the war, they were pretty much ALL destroyed.
    There’s a show in the US/UK about people that fix up tanks for collectors, and man….. they’re cutting two blown up tanks in half, and putting the two good halves together to make one good tank. That’s how hard they are to come by now. And a Tiger? Forget it. Just not out there.

    Its truly amazing what an ordinary person or small group of people can do
    Who needs big companies do complete such tasks and work

    awesome awesome to the max

  17. DougW says:

    Tanks for the pictures

  18. Nathan says:

    Why are you people complaining?! This is WAY better then computer animated crap as well as the movies where German tanks are either T-34’s or M-46’s just with extra metal or wood on them! These guys rock for bringing history to life and adding realism to movies!

  19. WWtS says:

    Knowing Russian technics, it will be twice more reliable and four time less fuel consuming than the original.

    • likt says:

      I hope you’re joking. Especially this part – “four time less fuel consuming”. Seriously – fuel economy of russian tanks are like compact american cars – no matter how hard they try, it just not the real thing.
