"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.

"Outstanding Kit"
A very good kit. Tamiya has produced an exceptionally detailed kit. The figure in the turret is really detailed, and the instruction book also has placement for the photo-etched grills (not included). There are also six different markings for three different variants of the tank. It also includes a length of fabric tube for the exhaust. It is a nice detail that makes the tank more realistic however, the fabric frays easily and is a little hard to cut. Also, I would recommend putting the wheels on after you paint it, because of the overlapping suspension system. All in all, a very great addition to any modeler's collection.

"excellent model from tamiya..."
this was a great kit to build. no probs at all. all parts fit well. no flashing to speak of. I think this is one of the better tigers to comes with many versions. I went with the older version to go along wit my Pommern collection. for a diorama. if you are looking for something easy but versatile? this is it.

"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.
