Hi,

You might like to look at this topic:

http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=70.0

And
What about the Tiger II? I hope it's already on the to-do list  ;D
The Tiger II would be a challenge!  The size of the tank with two turret variant to fit into 3 or even 4 (like the Tiger I) sprues is something that we need to look into!  The Tiger II is something that we will do much later... after we had gain more experience with plastic production first!
;)

Welcome to the forum.

Warlord are due to release a plastic King Tiger in the Autumn.
No idea what it will be like, but hope it is better & easier to build than the current resin & white metal kits.
I got the one with added zimmerite, and it does look good now it has been painted, but OMG, what a pain to build.

The 2 track guards/ fenders are a single piece white metal casting and there is very little area to locate & attach to the hull. It was almost impossible to get them perfectly straigh & aligned so that they fit properly. The gun barel was also twisted and bent & the muzzel break looks terrible.

The Tiger II is now not a priority as Italeri is going to release one.  Would like to see the final quality of the Italeri release first before our next move on this kit.  ;)

Hi guys, Sounds like a very sensible move.
