I would be in for one King Tiger and possibly a second. That would depend on the quality of the tank.

Herr Skorzeny, do you have any more information on this King Tiger? What will it be made of, resin or
plastic?

My thoughts echo Normandy’s... I am interested, but it depends on the quality. I would want to see more design/prototype pics or something so that I would know what I’m getting into. Is the model intended to have moving tracks, rotating turret, etc.? If it’s similar quality to the FOV Bravo Team Tiger in terms of design, I would be down for one, even if I have to paint it :wink:

Thanks for all the interesting Gentleman

I understand all your concerns. I m familiar with the scale, if it won't match the quality or accuracy, I will shut down the project

My goal is the more folks have a chance to have one or even more like in the old days. so for it, we had to sacrifice

important details like Engine view, interior view, machine gun on the top, figure and others details, like we had in the 21-

century tiger 1. I had the option for 1, (250 $ tiger 2, per unit ) well detail but A lot of folks will be out to have one.

so if we have the need for one well detail king tiger 2, I m sure Matts ( pickelhaube ) will be able to help us out. with

all respect to his works.

I just update the details up to the page. soon I have the design I will post in here and more update too. if you can please

support us, please spread the word, thanks

pickel

I m sure the initial will be made by Resin and Pvc( body made with Resin, the track made with PVC )

injection molded would be great! but we will need 1000 orders, and the price would drop by 50$ per unit

Pindar Plastic&Electric Co., Limited, will make the cat.

they had experienced before with 21-century toys in 1/32 scale

I think I´m interested in one. Got one from Matthew but you never can get enough Kingtigers :D :wink:
Will do some talking about this project here in Germany / Europe. Maybe we´ll get some more for Overseas.

I would also like to see the finish product. It would be nice if they made a Porsche turreted version.

Thank you all for the interesting !!

Gentlemen's!. Last week I was in touch with the Project Engineer, and I expressed the need for quality and accuracy.

I sent to him this 3d King tiger design, He told me he would base his 3D drawing in this one.
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/vehi ... king-tiger

1-He will design in 3d

2 -He will print in 3d

3-He will Molding (depend on the number of orders, It could e made by molding injection)

4 -Material ABS, Eco-friendly PVC

So he told me, we will need 50 orders to bring the cat to life, (no more 15 order )

The unit price won't changed 120$

I need your support in this ' to spread the news, for this project happen!

they made a page on facebook https://www.facebook.com/Pindar-Toys-229332021073747/

and also they made a section of our project at Pindar Toys web page
http://www.pindartoys.com/product-238.html

About Porsche turret and Jagdtiger variant, questions from PM would be great, but I m sorry now let us make this one first

I, need suggestions where more I can advertise this project?

Thank you, Crazy Kraut, in Germany for spread the news, and thank you all for the interesting!
