    I bought one from the museum last year (price versus Banzai was basically a wash because the Panther is a heavier box than than the JS-2, the dollar wasn't very strong and I didn't need another Tx),...

    It's easy for us in the States to dismiss things like this when we don't have to deal with unexploded ordinance that is still found on beaches and fields in Europe. As it is, some of the nicest...

    It's the Bon Ficha Tiger, first captured in Tunisia and subjected to ordinance testing for intel on what would penetrate the hull. You can see the marks they used...

    I may be in the minority, but I go out of my way to make the beam as narrow as possible. I scrim it down so it'll only be effective for a tank's width at 25 feet (that's the longest distance I have...

    I have an excellent repo copy of Die Tigerfibel, but that's mainly for young crew members, not the technical stuff.

    Man, you are one tough customer.

    Prices vary everywhere on every item, you can't hammer someone, especially if they're just starting out, then expect them to increase their product line.

    Dan has a good point. The Tiger's interleavered wheels were great for ground pressure but were susceptible to caking of mud/snow.
    Erik has a good point regarding wider tracks.
