Tiger I, R/C 1/35

Post by Greg K. » 29 Nov 2002 22:55

this is an R/C Tiger I in 1/35 scale. i bought it to build and play with for awhile, and just sold it on e-bay. i had alot of fun chasing my dog around with it..
the turret rotates and the tracks work like the real thing. and it makes sounds that will piss off you dog!!!!

Great looking Tiger!How much did it go for?I would love to have one,but don't want to spend almost a grand on one of the big ones from Tamiya.Didn't know they made a 1/35 RC Tiger,it's been a while since I bought any!

i paid about $70.00 for it, but some places want $115....
look for them on e-bay, the cheaper ones are sold from Japan, $70 or so,,,
i sold mine for $90 and it sold with in hours with "buy-it-now".. i diden't want to rip anyone off thats why i sold cheap, and i diden't know if it looked any good/if anyone wanted to buy it..
you have to build every thing, even the gears it's pretty fun.. they also have a 1/72 scale Tiger out, it's cheaper and doe's the same.. looks great...

thanks for the nice note.... :D

i had to paint it, it came like a model does and so you have to put it together and build the gear-boxes and everything...
it's pretty fun to make due to you really get to play with it after your done..
if you want anyother info let me know.. c-ya... :)

hi, billy

well i went to: http://www.archertransfers.com/ and went into their "browse & shop"
and under "flags" you can see "German National Flag"
they sell the best dry transfers on the market. i put their tranfer on foil and then bent it the way i liked it.
but you can do it your way, i just liked the clean look of their flag's.... send in a photos as you go along with your build of your Tiger..:)

Hey Dragonman, I hope you're feeling better.
The only thing I can add to this discussion is that I saw, for the first time, a 1/35th Remote Control Tamiya kit (Tiger I) at an Ohio hobby shop for $109.00. I passed on it, but really I just wanted to say hello to Dragonman.
Best Regards, David
