This is the link from the German site that contains the Russian made tanks....http://www.bigtanks.de/site/bigtanks-n.htm
If you click on the British flag it changes the page from German to English and then, the description goes straight into the fact that they are Russian made .............The 1:4 Scale Tiger 1s hull etc is actually made out of plywood...
The 1:6th scale Tigers description translates as this.....
Tiger I on a scale of 1:6
scale1:6drive 2 motors with a single gearbody GRP built paint finished as desired Special features,All parts of the drive incl optional metal chains, recoil
In our opinion the best 1:6 (New Generation)
from 2007 with a new chaindimensions
Length approx 137cm width 62 cm height 48 cmweightwith all drives about 70 KG
price depending on the equipment ready built from 3350, - (! New Generation)
I like the part about ..'.In our opinion the best 1:6 new generation'....and the cost of ..FROM..3350 EUROS......at a price of over £3000.....it had better be .....Bloomin' Good !..Especially since that is a START price.....Bearing in mind that the Armortek FULL METAL is £5000....and their quality is second to none......
I have to say that since the 1:4th scale are made out of plywood it does NOT fill me with a lot of confidence...
...and neither does their price-tag at a MASSIVE 7800 EUROS
I do not want to appear to be bashing a vendor that I do not know ....but bearing in mind the price of OVER £7000.... then I think that a close scrutiny IS actually called for......just look at this picture of their finished 1:4th Scale Tiger......and decide for yourself, I think that it is a 'Spot-The-difference' photo that has been included......
...Compare the image of the late Tiger 1 at the Saumur museum in France... My differences list starts with...1.the vision block, 2. the size of the headlamp,3. no notches on the towing eyes for the late model AND it has features of an early turret with the binocular sites and side vision slit ,etc . I could say more but feel free to add your own 'Differences' ......
