I would like to know the pros and cons of the Tamiya 1/16th German King Tiger. I've always liked this kit since it was my first large scale kit!
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi mate

The greatest con is the price depending on if you can get static version which are slightly cheaper or an RC version in both forms theyíre expensive Trumpeter is around half or below the Tamiya Kit.

Add some etch to detail the engine deck and a few more details your left with one very expensive model that still doesnít come close to the Trumpeter kit.

If you want a Detailed RC KT then itís very possible to do but if itís static find a Trumpeter KT

Hope that helps

I have the Trumpy kit 910, it has more parts, higher detail, plus interior.
