Lol first boxart looks massive and real, second boxart, the tiger looks like a toy out of dimensions , just too high like a monster truck

*** Ha ha! I am not sure switching to steel wheels and getting different cupolas would be considered minor - it would be like saying a DV Sherman was a small change! I have recently gotten into allied armour thanks to state of the art kits coming out. Actually what we do need though is some British trucks other than the usual suspects - a Bedford OXD or OY 4x2 would be nice, or an Albion 10t GS or Thornycraft Amazon/Coles crane truck!!

And here I was slowly churning through my accumulated Tiger stash, oblivious to minor defects and simply enjoying the thrill of the build...can't see what Trumpy brings to the show that Tiger hasn't flogged to death already, though I am very interested in hearing what David D has to say. His site is very illuminating at correcting -or considering correcting- the errors and omissions on these kits. Works for me.

I meant to say "Dragon" where I mentioned incorrectly "Tiger hasn't flogged to death..."

David Byrden is not helping Trumpeter with their new Tiger kits. David has assisted Dragon in making their kits more accurate and someone thought he was helping Trumpeter as well.

Mr. Byrden threw a couple of tips on Trumpeter's FB announcement.

On a seperate note, it's certainly interesting how no "panzer nuts" have commented on the new Tamiya Sherman post, complaining it's not a Bergepanther or DAK Panzer III, etc. Perhaps our Sherman modellers could take a page out of our ettiquette notebook....
