    Re: Size Comparison Photos - Various Manufacturers

    TG Romans are compatible with JJD and Conte; typically 60-62mm tall. The TG WWI line is compatible with TCS and K&C i.e. 64-66mm typically.

    I recall Julie did some excellent comparison photos of...

    Re: New release: German Tiger Ausf E

    Figarti was a good example of Chinese QC. Flaking paint, missing parts, shifts in scale etc. The problems occurred in small production run products of typically 100 pieces. The companies I have...

    Re: New release: German Tiger Ausf E

    I stand by my comment that TCS got the wheels on right with this version. I also stand by the comment that US QA is superior to Chinese IMO. Disagree if you will but do not distort what i said!

    Re: New release: German Tiger Ausf E

    I stated the TSC got the wheels on right. I made no mention of a Chinese manufacturer as the source of the problem. I suggest you reread my post.

    Re: Gauls as Archers

    Conte made several Barbarian archer figures. I have posted photos of them in my Roman dioramas.
    The figures are a true 60mm and will work with TG, JJD, TCS and FL Romans and Barbarians.

    Re: New release: German Tiger Ausf E

    TCS got the wheels on right with this release. I wonder if US manufacture may have something to do with that! Better QA is good.

    Re: New Tiger

    Much more accurate than the last early production Tiger I from TCS. Made in the US should give TCS an advantage in shipping cost and better QC. I think it would look great in Panzergrau Wayne!

    First Legion really nailed the colors with this vehicle. I hope they stick with this mix in future Panzers.

    Re: Eagle Design King Tiger: Initial Review

    Thanks for the excellent photos Tom. The metal wheels do not look broken; it looks like the glue join of metal wheel to the resin hull failed. A better glue would solve this problem. I find Slicon...

  11. Re: Fixing the Eagle Design King Tiger (Replacing Cannon and Modifying Mudguards)

    Hunter I think using 1/2 inch Aluminum Angle for the mud guards would be better; as the material is quite thin and its available at any hardware store.

    Are you going to paint the new barrel?
  12. Re: Fixing the Eagle Design King Tiger (Replacing Cannon and Modifying Mudguards)

    Great fun Hunter! Darken the Lime Green a bit and add some Dunkel Gleb dots and you will have a Hinterhalt-Tarnung King Tiger. I used Tamiya Acrylic paint on mine and it worked well. XF-60 Dark...

    Nice to see that the Idler is correctly located. The metal tracks look really good and not full of mud.
    The removable tracks on the turret are a nice feature as is the opening hull hatches.

    A decapitated Roman at her feet would be appropriate to complete the scene.

    ED is still selling theirs with metal tracks at a reasonable $135.00 price including shipping. Last time I checked it is available in both long and short barrel, plus Grey, Winter and Desert colors.

    The Winter version of the ED Kingtiger is available at Y-Weido on Ebay. I think the white base would be ideal for repaints for those so inclined like Hunter rose and myself. No primer needed!
