Yet another Tiger I kit one might say, but this one from Border comes with a pig's leg as an accessory!

  • metal gun barrel
  • 3 types of turret stowage boxes
  • 5 types of gun mantlets
  • full interior of exhaust fan
  • 2 types of air filter and exhaust pipes
  • accessories such as ammo boxes, buckets, helmets, canvas rolls, barbed wire, pig's leg

Could you make the images smaller? I can still make out details on the model.

I need another Tiger like another testicle; nonetheless I'll probably get one if only for the accessories. The Tiger kit, that is.

At first I was like. "Oh great another Tiger." But then you got my attention with the different mantlets and stowage boxes. Then you totally sold me with the pig leg! Can't have enough pig legs in armor modeling.

I too really don't need another Tiger BUT, I really like Border Models kits. Their Leo2 was, IMHO, the best kit of 2019. It's great to see a bunch of different options and the bunch of extra stowage gear AND a pig's leg, I'm sold ! Hope it's ready in time for Christmas !

Having a stash of at least 6 Tiger I's, I look at this offering and wonder if it deserves a place here. With parts for other options being a leftover feature, it could play a role in building alternate versions on other kits, using a bit of gizmology.

Looking at it again I can only wish that the kit also came with the aerial recognition flag on the rear stowage bin (the Nazi flag) as I'm heartily tired of making them out of lead foil and decals...

I pre-ordered this from Andy's Hobby HQ. I am looking forward to getting it soon. I also have 6 unbuilt Tiger I kits in the stash. This one looked interesting to me.
