Just for fun, I put the two Tigers together.

:thumbup: :thumbup: I love the resurgence of the numerous Tiger 1 builds this winter. I'm sure most people's first WW2 RC tank was/is either a Tiger 1 or a Sherman but it also seemed that familiarity bred a kind of I wouldn't say contempt but just a meh attitude and i was the same for quite awhile. Not sure who's Tiger build last fall sort of got the ball rolling but it's great to see. It is a very interesting tank to model and so many choices to build one up

All was good, until I put my arm in some dog mess. This also got on the tracks. Lovely. :poop: Wouldn’t mind, but we don’t have a dog. Be one of the doty Weegies, from the ‘Oliday Carravans at the back ‘o us.

Outside shots are the best but not without their hazards :D . Knock on wood I've never had the dog :poop: issue. Greater chance at the field of running over raccoon land mines

The grey one is a mish mash of Tamiya, Hobby Boss, Taigen, and Heng Long. The camouflage one is Taigen.

"doty Weegies": I have to look that one up on Dr. Google. Methinks it's two young Glaswegians! No? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8631360/
