I can thoroughly recommend this to anyone interested in middling either the tiger 1 or tiger 2. Starts with historical perspective with great wartime photos and interesting notes from commanders diaries. Then tank is describebed in detail with drawings in detail for each variant produced. Also many drawings of individual parts. Wish I had this earlier. Colour photos in the middle section. Techniques got weathering painting and general construction,tools, zimmerit.
Rivet counters dream.

Good luck finding a copy.

No, They are not. I called them. It says within 4 weeks. They said that means most likely never.

Hope you get it. Went through for me too. Just when I phoned the shop they said it was unlikely to arrive.
Good luck. It is the best I've seen. Luck for me I could'nt get it from WH Smith as I ended up getting it for Half the price.

Looks like it's the paperback version but still worth getting.

I went and collected a copy of the book from Barbarossa books today. He has about a dozen left. The guy was most helpful and ordered me another book from the publishers while I was there, and provided me with tea and biscuits!

Putting aside the problems some members have had obtaining this book from a particular seller I must emphasise that this is an ESSENTIAL purchase for anyone looking to upgrade the Tiger 1. I see copies on ebay every few weeks and they usually go for less than £20...

Barbarossa books might have them still but I found them expensive for postage.

Off topic but still books. Trojca tigers in color, konigstiger in color and others in series. Very good for paint schemes. Also a book of drawings of king tiger. Pull out drawings in 1/16 scale. Got mine from jadar hobby Poland. Good prices and fast shipping.

For the record, I sent an email to barbarossabooks.eu and asked if they had the tiger book and the same book for the jagdtiger. The reply was Yes, and ready to ship.

However, I will not place the order as I believe this is evidence that we should blacklist this vendor:

Anyway, I am searching like crazy to get this book and I won't stop until I have a copy ! :-)

I placed an order for this book through a local vendor which orders from barbarossa books. There's no advance payment so I'm safe either way. Now I'm eager to see if Barbarossa will deliver :-)
