  • Eric:

    Please put me down with Dragon's 1/35th Royal Tiger with Porsche Turret (Kit 6312). I'm using Cavalier zimmerit but otherwise out-of-box. 

    Just because no one understands you- it doesn't make you an artist!

  • Excellent Cliff. Should be a beauty.


  • I will do Tamiya # 25142 Early Tiger I with Aber upgrade,and Club AFV workable links.



    Gamera,nice kitty,will you whitewash it also ?

  • Put me down for a Dragon Jagdtiger Henschel suspension. I will be using an aftermarket set of fenders so I can build the X7. If time permits I my do my Dragon Initial Production Tiger I.

  • Since this will have a start date of September, I am interested. By then I can be done with some of mycurrent builds and have room for something new. Either a Dutch Leopard II or a Grossdeutschland Panther A...Hmm

    F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

    U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

    N is for NO SURVIVORS...

  • P-38 was wondering if a Hellcat could qualify? I'm not sure how to answer that. Does anyone know if it was allowed in the first Big Cats GB?


  • Eric , revenge for what ? Confused

  • Shellback

    Eric , revenge for what ? Confused

    There was apparently a Big Cats Gb some time ago. so in our playful banter, what to call this one? Maybe just Big Cats 2? or Big Cats Part Deux?


  • put me in for a Panther F by DML,, 1/35


    and I'd like to ask about the Hellcat, although not a "big" cat, it did hunt the other cats mentioned above....


    Big Cats Part Duex sounds good,, or,, The Scratching PostWhistling( lil play on the theme.. )



  • Is that kit #6403? The smart kit?


  • The sequel! Man, it's been a while since the last one...I'm definitely in, T-man. Kit TBD once September rolls around. Got all kinds of stuff that will fit the bill, so i'll see what's lacking (or what "calls out to me") once football season starts.

    Can't wait! Big Smile

    Oooooh...Sturmtiger. Hmmmmm. Wink

  • Eric, how about some LITTLE Big Cats?  Big Smile  I've got some 1/72 Dragon kits that I've been itchin to build:

    If those won't do, then I can enter this 1/35 Dragon King Tiger that's been sitting in the stash ever since it was first released back in 2007:
