The crew at the Deutsches Panzer Museum show us how to assemble a Tiger kit


Recommended Posts

 

"Behind the scenes - the PlasTiger is being assembled.

 

The "Technologist base deceiving and camouflaging" in Storkow made a great copy of a tiger for the Deutsches Panzer Museum - the PlasTiger. In this time-lapse video you can see the object arriving in Munster in April 2017 and being put together by the builders."

if you stand infront  of this Tiger, you get much impression, even its just a 1/1 model, and you cannot believe thats just a model, coz it looks really really real.

Hi,

It looks like they kind of went for a Link & Length type track instead of rubber band tracks on this build 😉

 

PS.  It also didn't seem like the road wheels were ever really connected to the lower hull from what I could see,😟

They have built an "impossible" Tiger. It has features of the earlier and later models combined. No such Tiger would ever have existed really. That's how you can tell it's a replica.

That's hysterical! :rofl2:

 

A diorama of a them assembling their 1:1 model would be a very cool diorama!

 

And no, those road wheels are just sitting there, captured between the tread links.

Indeed! Without an all round view I for one can't tell if its a hybrid? Given the amount of time and effort (and no doubt expense) they went to, i'm surprised its not 100% accurate, specially in a Panzer museum.......

Atleast they can show the dimensions of a Tiger I for the generaly public. Surely they didn't build it for rivet counter.
