Oooo...a couple of BIG kitties!! Nice haul there Leon! I actually didn't buy one kit...sort of! LOL Just that Ban Dai Millennium Falcon, but that is kind of "work related" since I needed some props for Wonderfest! Bring on that building Leon!
Need to finish the StuG first Todd! Just popped the lid on the Dragon Tiger and going to have to be very carefull with the assembly as there are options for three different tanks and mirrored or standard tracks.
See, I think think the DS tracks are pretty decent - at least on a vehicle where there's no sag or return rollers to droop around. On a Tiger? They just lay there anyway, so expensive replacements aren't going to look THAT much better, IMHO.
I bought that Tiger a couple years back with the idea of building Otto Carrius' Tiger. The kit is a Leningrad Front Tiger but also not the right version. On the other hand I have found a couple of interesting Tigers that can be built off the kit. I did get the Tamiya Carrius kit, and may just use it.
Believe it or not, but I've never bought a Tiger II kit till this year! I've now got two Takom's and a Revell/ICM kit. I'll probably pick up another Revell kit, as it's a steal at $35. Plus it's a good kit. Have seen the Tamiya kit on the shelf, but never bought one. May pick up another Takom or Meng kit in the future when I have some extra cash. gary
