You're assuming that everybody has the same opinions as you. But we don't. If you don't make a comment, we won't know what you are thinking. David [/quote] Hello, David! I should think that my "YAWN" emoticon, " ", might have expressed my opinion more than adequately, rather than posting some tiresome, and oft-repeated diatribe which might have only raised the hackles of Tiger fans... You, in turn, are assuming that my own personal comment and opinion is, in my own mind, shared by the other contributors in this thread- By NO means. My opinion is my own. If anyone should care to agree with me, then it is their own prerogative to do so, and I DO NOT EXPECT that anyone else will. That's all. So... "another tiger..." (big deal...)

Many thanks

Speaking of "cons"; I've posted what I consider the first real "con" of this kit... based on the one single sprue photo that we have seen so far. Floor duct on Rye Field's Mid Tiger Not an easy thing to fix. David

Not easy, as you pointed out; but, entirely doable.

While I'm sure that this kit is very nice -problems notwithstanding- I can't help but feel that we're trundling down the "every variant in creation plus one" that Dragon loves to sucker us in on...and as to the Zimmerit issue, oh well, out comes the Tamiya putty and scrapers yet again.

I don't agree. "Final Mid Tiger" is a major version, there were about 200 of them; in fact it's strange that Rye Field give us so few decals in this kit. Now, the "Bergepanzer Tiger" was certainly a milestone along that road! David

I've said it before and I'll say it again...pros, cons, early, mid, late...who cares...it's just another Tiger...buy it and build it or STFU...!!We really do like to see ourselves in print don't we...including myself...LMAO...!!!

I care. I, and I'm sure many others as well, don't like to pay a wad of cash for inaccurate kits. And I'll take Byrden's opinion over yours any day of the year.

Question is.. what do you prefer? 1. a somewhat accurate kit in need of many AM things like PE details, tow cables and tracks which will cost all in all way over 100$ or 2. a reasonable accurate kit which doesn't need any aftermarket pieces and better details for half the price? I for one would always choose the second option cause many of these "inaccuracies" can be fixed fairly easy in no time. cheers Chris
