Great job!

A beautiful kit to build. I did build mine in the mid-nineties with the same paint scheme, but unfortunately then I did not use gloss and mat varnish with the decals, and they are now the worst for wear... It needs a rehabilitation work.

Yours is smashing and I hope you are proud of it.

 

Congrats.

Great model! Sadly currently no one want to produce a new Tiger model and the Hasegawa one is hard to find on market

Indeed, I got this one by sheer coincidence in the second-hand section of a small webstore. A re-release, or even better, a re-tooling of this kit would be nice. But with only a small amount of planes built and just a few years of service it's probably not popular enough for the big scale model companies..

Great looking build.  This is a really cool plane, it's a shame that it wasn't more successful.  The Navy had some really interesting looking aircraft in that period.  Tiger, Cutlass, Skyray, and Demon, were all very interesting looking but short-lived aircraft.

Beautiful model in perhaps the most striking markings the Tiger ever wore. Wasn't Kittyhawk working on a Tiger not long before they shut down? I don't recall if it was to have been 1/48 or 1/32 scale  but I do recall some excitement over it.

Thanks! And you're right; a quick search at scalemates says that sadly Kittyhawk's 1/32 kit of this plane was cancelled. Hopefully other scale model companies will pick up the subject in the future.
