Overview

The Tiger has proved to be one of the most popular modelling subjects of all time, with a vast and ever-increasing range of kits, aftermarket products and references available. Probably the most famous tank of World War II, the Tiger was designed in response to the German Army's fighting experience in Western Europe, North Africa and Russia. Armed with the most powerful German gun, the famous 88mm, the Panzer VI Tiger was intended to dominate the battlefield from the East to the West.

In this book, some of the world's most talented modellers cover six separate Tiger projects, their work illustrated by a collection of step-by-step color photographs detailing everything from insignia to battle damage in a variety of combat theaters to illustrate the Tiger's full wartime experience. With varying degrees of difficulty, this will appeal to both experienced modelling enthusiasts and newcomers attempting their first project.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Osprey's Modelling series shows how advanced modelers use their knowledge, skills and expertise to create incredibly and correctly detailed models of all sorts... Each book discusses how a variety of model kits are used to make authentic looking WWII vehicles... If you are looking for books that provide the high detailing to take your miniatures to the next level, you should check these books out." -Michael Koznarsky, Historical Miniature Gamer (Issue 11)

"The variety of authors allows the reader to view a number of different styles and techniques, each arriving at a pleasing and impressive model... After reading it, you feel as if nothing in the modeling world is impossible to do. As such it will prove to be an inspirational book to all lovers of the Tiger I. Recommended." -Rob Baumgartner, missing-lynx.com (July 2007)

"This all results in another superlative book in the Osprey Modelling series and one can see why these books are so popular." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (July 2007)

"The book is superbly compiled from the work of five different authors and tied together in a logical and easily-understandable manner by the Editor...The first AFV Modeling title in several months from Osprey Publishing. Like the other books in the series, this promises to be an invaluable source of both inspiration and some highly applicable techniques." -Jim Rae, Armorama (August 2007)
