Re: 1/18 King Tiger

This was a long build along with the mold making process .

It took me about 3-4 weeks to make all of the molds.

The new molds took me slightly over 2.

So far ...

I saw this post searching for something else.

Times are a changing.

Now Shermans are running for around $200

This post is about 4 years old when you could still get Shermans for $50-$75 !!!

Re: Re-Vamping the King Tiger ?

If you guys are still interested I am taking orders now on the re-vamped King Tiger and Jagdtiger .

I do have to remake the molds on the project and could use the payments to get more mold rubber and resin.

$350 plus about $20-$30 shipping.

Shipping is starting to go through the roof !!!!!
