1:35 Scale Tiger II Henschel Turret Wanted
« on: March 26, 2017, 04:09:13 PM »
I'm looking to do a 1:35 scale kit bash that will require a Tiger II Henschel turret (complete with gun). In an effort to try and keep the price down and not have to buy the entire kit, I was wondering if anyone had a spare turret knocking around that they might be willing to make a deal on.

Well I guess that answer to that one sits somewhere between 'unfortunately not my good fellow' and 'get lost you Highland loon, I'd rather eat my own giblets!'

Anyhoo, it was worth a try, I suppose...  :( ;)

The former, in my case.

I only have a few (maybe 4) German WW2 AFV's in my stash that aren't based on the Czech tanks & none of them are Tiggers. Sorry! :-[

No problem at all.  :)

The request was always going to be a bit of a shot in the dark but it appealed to my miserly Scottish genes. I guess I'm just going to have to cough up the cash and buy new.  ;)

And then you'll have to buy a conversion kit, or something, to make use of the remaining Tiger II hull and running gear.  It's a never-ending cycle.

Quite.  The problem is that I already have a spare Tiger II hull from a previous conversion (The Big Mac). Perhaps I could join that one and the new one into some unholy push-me-pull-you contraption...  ;)

Perhaps as moving units for a very large artillery piece?  Alternatively, could each serve as the chassis for a Wasserfall TEL for air defence?

I have a Tiger II...But with a Porsche turret. I also have plans to use it at some point. Sorry. Maybe you could use one of the hulls as an APC or command vehicle like an M577?

Roger that. I don't doubt that the left over hulls will eventually come in useful but they are not a priority right now.
