Overview

The Tiger tank is probably the most famous tank of World War II. Both the Tiger I and its successor, the Tiger II, were used as bases for other German vehicles. This book covers a wide range of vehicles based on the chassis of the Tiger I and II tanks in 1/72 scale. It provides a detailed guide to modelling the basic tank versions as well as the Sturmmörser Sturmtiger (Tiger I variant), Jagdtiger (Tiger II variant) and the Panzerjäger Tiger (P) Elefant tank destroyer. A variety of camouflage schemes are described in depth, and the text covers photo-etched parts, resin aftermarket sets, scratch-building, and the use of figures and groundwork.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As Clark says in his introduction, the book was written in the hope it could be a useful guide to the complexities of building the Tiger in 1/72nd scale, in this, he has admirably succeeded... Highly Recommended." -Jim Rae, Armorama (March 2006)

"Quite honestly, there’s nothing bad about this new volume from Osprey Publishing. Excellent, accurate information, top notch photography and instruction, and a nice selection of subject variant builds all come together to a definite thumbs up!" -Antonio J. R. Carvalho, Armorama (March 2006)

"In all, a very nicely done book and one that anyone who likes to build 1/72 armor would find of interest. I know I picked up a few things to try and I'm sure you will too." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com
