Please feel free to chat about this month's TOTM here.

I know I've been looking forward to a month like this, just dedicated to Tiger 1's.

I'm sure it will have been worth the wait.

Submission thread can be found here.

I shall repeat the rules here, or rather what this month's TOTM is about.

This month is dedicated to all those popular Tiger 1's.

Which means ONLY Tiger 1's are eligible for this month's TOTM.
Just normal turreted Tiger 1's, no Tiger P's, no Berg, no Sturm, Jagd, paper or otherwise. And no versions I've missed out that may have escaped me. Just turreted Tiger 1's, from early to late, with or without turret boxes of whatever kind were used.

The only Tiger 1's NOT eligible are the ones already in the TOTM Winners Gallery.

Other than that, all the usual rules apply, just a total of 8 visual representations of your model, which can be a mixture of photos and videos, or just one or the other up to a total of eight.

Please reframe from chatting in the submission thread until the voting has been activated. I'm sure I'll get the ball rolling with some nonsense or other ;)

Bring ‘em on! Ich will hier der Tiger I oder Panzerkampfwagen VI Ausführung E oder Sonderkraftfahrzeug 181 sehen.

TOTM is great fun. I remember it fondly from Hobby Havoc of the land down under, “where women shine and men chunder.” Every entry humiliated me, leading to my motto Make Modeling Mediocre Again. And then one month I won, the voters being either blind drunk or smitten with pity. So bring on those Tigers!

Thank you Mr Ad Lav for our first Tigertastic entry :clap:

But I must point out that you tease us Sir, you say the front hatches open, but don't show us ;)

Excellent Tiger! I love the loader looking at the map. Adds to the overall realism.

Rad, your battle damaged zimmerit is the best I’ve seen. Very much first class modeling.

Thanks! It was easy (and believe or not fun) to do if you follow my tutorial.

Excellent tank and photos, spongehoobtank! I love the glass in the periscopes on the hatches and the missing front fenders are my favorite Tiger look. The weathering and rear end treatment is very nice.

Wow all the Tigers !! I enjoy looking at all those great examples of what you all are doing on and inside your tanks and bringing them to the battlefields. Certainly picking up some inspiration for future builds. Also makes me wonder if my Taigen Tiger is worthy. May need to get some more glamor shots ;)

My apologies for causing such a dilemma, but I just knew there would be plenty of Tigers out there worthy of our attention :D
