Default tiger

Thats just fantastic, better than those T34 based tigers they cobbled together in 'saving private ryan'.

Are they original tiger battle tracks?

kev.

Man thats an awesome replica. You'd have to have a few dollars and time to build that, Most impressive and well built by the looks of things. Wouldn't want to be in it when a round was sent my way though.

They built 2 of these for a film and are now offering one of them for sale around 450,000 Euro, and if you have deep pockets will build for you. New made tracks.

The idler is definatley modified t54-55.

And the tracks were they reproduced or originals?

Default Tiger replica

This sure confirms that it is quite feasible to do a replica. On a Tiger I, the toughest thing is the suspension and tracks, but these people did an admirable job of trying to duplicate that. Would be something to do one for the War Museum in Ottawa, but it would have to be dead accurate to be worth doing. I think there is another Tiger I replica in Europe somewhere, made of steel plate also, and fairly accurate, as I saw a video of it on track-link.net site, and I don' t mean the T-34 ones from Kelly' s Heroes. Not much info on that one,but it exists

Rob: No way...but next time you're over, I'll fire it up and do a demo for you.

Radio controlled, it moves forward/back at various speeds, turns/pivot turns, turret traverses, barrel elevates/depresses, main gun fires with a sound and light flash that will scare the hell out of you when you hear/see it the first time. Co-axial MG fires also. Sound track is from a recording of a running Maybach engine in a Royal Tiger at the museum in Samur.

PS don't forget 26 May for M14 Clinic.

There...I'm finished hi-jacking the thread!

Default Tiger Tank Replica

The entire build process is on Facebook rondos63@groups.facebook.com
They have a bunch of videos of it running and driving and they can be found on YouTube as well.

No SMALL undertaking LOL!
