Wot? No 6mm version? ;)Always nice to see big cats on a Friday :)
I couldn't find the picture earlier but I have now... so a picture of my 6mm tigers have been added just for you!
Nice divisional support. Not my fave tank in WW2 but still a good one. The 15mm version does look very good indeed.
The Tiger wasn't a particularly successful tank (with only 1347 produced it was never going to have a major impact) but it was certainly intimidating. Standing next to the real thing, especially when the engine is running, it is hard not to be impressed. Its easy to understand how its reputation was almost a weapon in itself, with allied tankers seeing every German tank as a Tiger. One story I heard was about an American Sherman that hid behind a hedgerow only to find a tiger feet away the other side of the foliage. The Sherman crew mastered their shock and rapidly fired off three AP rounds at point blank range (literally a couple of feet) without any effect. The Tiger returned fire and split the Sherman's turret clean in two. A completely unequal encounter and an example of why the Tiger was so feared.
Looking good. Thanks for the post. We must have been thinking of Tigers at the same moment. Love the different scales. I'm finding my eye wont operate below 1/72...it's 'blind old git syndrome' I'm afraid.
My eyesight isn't too good close up so I rely on reading glasses to paint by. The prescription isn't too bad at the moment but I expect in a few years time I'll be as blind as Mr Magoo.
Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
