Impressive! Far better than any "movie Tiger" made by welding some plates on T-44 or T-34 (like in "Kelly's Heroes for example).
I suppose you guys made hull and turret yourselves. I also suppose you used engine and transmission from some Russian tracked vehicle. If so - which one was it? Anything with front drive, like MTLB? Or did you use, say, T-55 transmission and put it front-back? I think you had a lot of work with tracks and all the wheels, as it looks like you made them yourselves too. But what about suspension - did you use torsion bars and so on from some vehicle?

Your Tiger is awesome. Totally awesome!

But not as awesome as the driver. How he got a vehicle that size into and out of that narrow garage without hitting anything is beyond me! The doorway is only a few centimetres wider than the tank!
