One amazing replica - even the tracks look correct. The only part that looks out of scale at first glance is the hull plates look too wide where the towing hooks are attached. Also the towing hooks themselves are too thin. Incredible job overall!

This is a replica, a very good one. The only running Tiger is in England

I'd like one of these. There's few places to park where I live, with one of these, it wouldn't be a problem.

Maybe it's true : simple = better but that never would have worked for Germany. You cant brainwash a whole Nation telling them again and again that they are better Humans and born leaders of the world and then put them into those suicide T-34/Sherman. Neither did have Germany the Industrie to mass produce cheap light tanks nor did they have enough soldiers to man them. For such a small Country there was only one option to even get a chance to win : Quality. Russia and USA sadly never gave much for a Soldiers Life but Germany had to so they tried to build some moving Fortress with a badass gun. Gladly that didnt worked quite as well as Hitler wished but facts are: German Tank Crews tend to survive much longer than those of the other Nations and a very high price was paid to free Europe, more than necessary i'd like to say.

This monster gained infamy for a reason.
Solid armor, deadly cannon.
But completly overtech, so it constantly broken down.
In the early phase of itīs deployment, more Tigers were lost due to engine failures than enemy fire. FAR more.
Later, they overcame most troubles, making it reliable, but by then, allied forces had guns able to threaten it.
But itīs main problem was the fact that it was almost constantly completly outnumbered.

More like, the more reliable, the better.
The Tiger was, in every other subject, superior to almost any allied tank, only outdone in single points, but never in all at itīs introduction.
But you are right in that just this was itīs main weakness.
