Thanks for the review, Mike.

This really is a very unusual subject and conversion. If ever an Axis modeller was looking for something different to put on the competition table this would be it.

I agree Rudi.

1) It's the Tiger (P) which we don't see much of....and basically, having built one (my RammTiger), it's a SLICK kit.

2) Have you, or anyone else, seen a "testbed" build? Not to my knowledge. Show me a tank with it's test turret (like this), "weighted turret" (concrete rings for weight), or anything in that realm...I haven't seen one. Potential is quite large.

I will say though, the "oddity" of the coversion is both it's pro and con.
