    I don't know how I missed this one on Kickstarter.
    It's the same company that made the Age of Dogfights I backed earlier this year.
    I see they made 'realistic' tanks as well: HERE
    I have sent them a message to see if/when those will be available again.

    Take my money!

    Yep, the photo of the SPR Tiger is a T34. I even have photos of it in action some years ago at a Battle of the Bulge reenactment. As you can see the model is a Bolt Action Tiger!. I wanted to paint is as the SPR Tiger for an upcoming battle with Bob (BB401). BTW, love your Tigers!

    This week will see the painting man cave getting a severe blitz so hopefully I can be more of a part of the December workbench.

    They do a B24, Lancaster and an He177. $18 MENG KIDS, save 40% with Hobby Lobby weekly coupons, dare I mention they make a fun tanks set too . . .

    My hobby store uses their tanks for a big tanks game at cons.
    As for the Tiger William, they make Kelly's Hero's tigers at Warlords based off the movie vehicles which I think were T34's. They would likely be a good match for your Photo.

    It didn't go quite as expected but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out all the same.
    I painted out the lozenge on the wings with an earlier style cammo then over painted it all with some old GW Ruby Red, added some decals, varnish & a Peter Pig pilot to finish it off.

    The colour differences are greater than I expected, the ruby red is a little more translucent than the blood red I usually use and maybe I should have given it a coat of that first

    but I do like how it looks

    I was simply after an approximation of the paint scheme of "431" that appeared in Saving Private Ryan. I was not interested in a T34 chassis but an actual Tiger ! from Bolt Action. I also just received a Marder III (which got burned up with a Molotov Cocktail in the movie). Click image for larger version.

    This is a photo from the Bulge reenactment I spoke of which included the SPR (T34) Tiger. I cant imagine what it costs to transport an oversize load like that to a reenactment!

    Next up for me are 2 Aviatik C1's. These have a strange firing arch since the gunner is up front and the gun is on either side of him with a restricted use of the gun. The Aeronaut book says that they started with just one gun that had to be moved from one side to the other. They then changed to one gun on each side. Hev to see how these will be in a game.

    Great work Bob. It always strikes me how high the LFG Roland D.VI had the pilot sitting, but evidently "the poor view from the cockpit was rectified by raising the seat on production planes" (Grosz'93), and it's what all the period photographs show: pilots with their shoulders well above the cockpit rim.

    Yes looks like he had a good field of vision.
