Spotlight Review

"Long ago memories"
I remember building a couple of these kits when I was around twelve years old in 1972. Tamiya kits were my favorites,I also had several other Tamiya tank kits. A few were motorized, I would spend a lot of time building them in the basement with the radio playing. I had M-41,M-60a1 and a2 and the tiger1 and the Jagpanther lots of fun. Of course they were a lot cheaper then, you could buy them for less than $7-8. Yall have fun.

"Awesome, great"
I've just finished with the tiger. It's everything and more than I thought it would be. Just a beautiful model once it's together. It was a good enough challenge but easy enough. Everything literally fell into place. The detail is spectacular. It's one you must have if you like a great looking model. I can't say enough about it. Four different versions with paint schemes. Tamiya was on point with this one. I want another one.

"Great Tamiya Kit, as always"
This is yet another Tamiya kit that pretty much falls together. Fairly few parts, which makes for fast assembly. Also includes easy to complete rubber band tracks, and the kit gives good instructions as to how to assemble them. They are certainly much better than the annoying track links you will find on many kits from other brands. The detail is good, the instructions are clear, and it goes together really well. What more could you want from a kit? It comes together to create a realistic and fearsome model Tiger I tank, making it a must have for any World War Two armor modeller. Would definitely recommend.

"Awesome First Armor Kit"
Douglas (Texas)
This was an awesome kit, All the parts fit perfectly. The instructions and coloring information was very detailed and left no doubt how to assemble this kit. Pro's Great detail and easy to follow instructions. All the pieces fit together quite nicely with little trimming required. Con's Can not think of any. Would like to have seen pictures of the box and sprues in the item view.
