Wanted: Tiger I

John Shaw - based in Northern California - is looking for a pre-owned Armortek Tiger I.

Both built or unbuilt is of interest and although John prefers the Tiger I, he will also consider other tank models.
John is not (yet) on the forum, but can be contacted by email: jmsfoto@mac.com

Placement of the Audio Module

Over the last week we have had 2 audio modules returned to us - they had both lost their sounds. Although we can only speculate as to why this happened, please note that the memory of the sound cards can be corrupted in the following scenarios: - Close proximity to strong magnetic or radio waves. - ...

At the moment we are still planning on attending.
The museum are going to make a decision around the middle of April and we will take our lead from them.

Re: Jagdtiger prototype

It has been a while since we posted any pictures - sorry about that. Prototype has been fitting together very well so far with only a few tweaks needed for the production run- Our factory zombie, Odo, took a break from posing in the Universal Carrier to sit on the JagdTiger to give a sense of size. ...

Re: Doesn't The New King Tiger Manuals Have Written Instructions?

Hi Mike - we moved away from written manuals a few years ago as we have many non-english speaking customers - *edit - and I should add that feedback is that people prefer the drawings supported by some text where needed. The manual actually already shows that the parts in question need to be loctite...

Re: Tiger build

......... Will be interested to see your blank fire, recoil ideas. Best regards, Bob Hi Mark, apart from potential safety issues, it is illegal in many countries to have a blank firing system that can recoil. For that reason, we kindly request that if you do develop a blank firer with recoil, you d...

Gentlemen, I really like your enthusiasm! However, we are in the middle of the King Tiger shipping and will only start planning our Militracks runnning area, the set up, our journey to Overloon, etc closer to the time.

Doing more for the environment

Our kits are already 100% recyclable (except for the resin parts) and so are our boxes and void fill (peanut packing in the boxes). But there is still more that we can do to lessen our environmental impact. Starting with the King Tiger our manuals are made form 100% recycled paper. In addition, from...
